INEC Is Yet To Bring Election Materials To Alimosho & Iba Because It's My Strongholds -Rhodes-Vivour

Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, the Labour Party candidate for governor of Lagos State, has claimed that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of Lagos State has not yet delivered election materials to polling units in the Alimosho and Iba districts of the state since these are his strongholds. After casting his ballot at his polling unit in Ward A 045 Oshifila/Abule Igbira, Anifowoshe in the Ikeja neighborhood of Lagos, Rhodes-Vivour told Channels Television that if APC candidate Babajide Sanwo-Olu wins the election, he will not congratulate him but instead contest the results in court.

Furthermore, Rhodes-Vivour claimed that the All Progressives Congress had engaged in widespread voter suppression throughout the state. Nonetheless, he was confident that the wills of the pepper would ultimately triumph, as this election represents a battle for Lagos's very identity.

And he went on to say "Since Alimosho and Iba are my strongholds, INEC has been slow to deliver electoral materials there. You find out that the materials for polling units have not yet arrived in places where we are strong and show our strength. The people's will ultimately wins out. Voter suppression campaigns have been heavily deployed. I'm not happy for someone who got into office by suppressing the vote or intimidating voters. There's no logical reason for me to act in that way. I plan to sue ".
