Obi’s victory in Lagos was not influenced by voters, and it was not a tribal victory – Rhodes-Vivour
Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, the Labour Party (LP) governorship candidate in Lagos State, has stated that the Party’s triumph in the state will not be based on ethnic lines.
Rhodes-Vivour, who made the announcement during a news conference in the state’s Lekki area on Wednesday, said the party won in areas where the opposition has never won in the last two decades, like Alimosho, Ikeja, and others.
“This was not a tribal win,” he said.
“We won in locations where the opposition had never won in the previous two decades; we won in Alimosho, we won in Ikeja, and we won in a number of other places.”
In response to the just finished presidential election in the state, he stated that votes of his Party’s flagbearer, Peter Obi were manipulated because results were not electronically transmitted by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
According to him, LP won over 900,000 votes because the youths came out and without any voter inducement.
He further rejected the process by which the results were announced because it was not electronically as promised by INEC.
“From our situation room, we see that we won over 900, 000 votes and this was all because you came out.
“This was won without any voter inducement. We cannot stop thanking the good people of Lagos. We made history in that election; we took Lagos State and restored it to the people.
“We unequivocally reject the process by which the results were announced because it was not electronically as promised by INEC.” He said.
Meanwhile, he called on Lagosians, especially the youths, not to be deterred by the outcome of Saturday’s presidential and National Assembly election but to come out en masse and vote out the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the guber and state assemblies’ polls.
