The governorship candidate of the Labour Party in Lagos State, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, has stated that he will defend the votes of his supporters in the election held on Saturday.
Gbadebo made this known via a tweet on his Twitter page on Sunday.
He said, “Firstly, I would like to thank all Lagosians, especially our supporters, for coming out to vote yesterday for us. I’m convinced that with you in our corner, a new Nigeria is imminent.
“However, I am saddened by the confirmed reports of violence and gross disenfranchisement of voters who only wished to perform their civic duty.
“Attacks on polling units, voters, and our party agents are totally antithetical to what we stand for & what Lagos truly represents.
“Collusion between the ruling party and electoral officials to return the candidate of the All Progressives Congress is a slap on the face of democracy and everyone who came out to vote for us on Saturday.

“In the light of this, I am convinced beyond any doubt that the results being released by the Independent national Electoral Commission do not represent the wishes of majority of peaceful Lagosians.
