The chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and other members of a socio-political group, Omo Eko Pataki, consisting of former Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Senator Kofoworola Akerele-Buknor and Mrs Onikepo Oshodi, have endorsed the candidate of the Labour Party, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour,  as the state governor in the forthcoming election scheduled to hold March 12.

The group, while endorsing the LP’s candidate, alleged threats to voters who refused to support a particular political party describing the action as divisive politics of annihilation of Nigerians.

Speaking at a press conference in Lagos on Monday, the leader of the group, Chief George expressed worry over threats being issued against voters suspected to be willing to vote against incumbency.

He urged Lagos residents to be wary of voting for the All Progressives Congress during the March 11 governorship election.
