Rhodes-Vivour narrated that all these are deliberate acts targeted toward suppressing voters in all areas where he stood a chance of bagging huge votes.
“There has been a lot of targeted voters suppression. Currently, at VGC, the polling unit agents do not want to go into the estates, instead they are trying to get people to come to the express where they colluded with thugs to disenfranchise them. This is illegal because INEC polling units are not on the highway.
“Also in Alimosho as of ten minutes ago, voting materials have not yet arrived. You will realize that everywhere that we are strong, either the materials are not available. In Alimosho, INEC officials are protesting that they have not been paid for the last election so they are not going to the field.”
