Guber poll: Let’s save Lagos, collapse your structure with LP, Rhodes-Vivour tells PDP

Let’s save Lagos, collapse your structure with LP, Rhodes-Vivour tells PDP

Ahead of the March 18 governorship election in Lagos, Labour Party, LP’s governorship candidate, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour has called on the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to join hands with him in his quest to win the poll.

In an interview with the Vanguard, Rhodes-Vivour said he is expecting the PDP in the state to collapse its structure and join him to save Lagos.




 

He said he’s a smooth and cordial relationship with the leadership of the PDP in the state from his time with the party and they both realised that all hands must be on deck if they were to stand a chance at winning the poll.

 

He said: “I have a relationship with the PDP. I came from the PDP. I was in the PDP for six years. I was the senatorial candidate for PDP in 2019.

 

“I had the most votes in the party. I know the leaders in the party. We understand that at a practical level, we need to have as many people working together, especially because this election process is not free and fair.

 

“They promised us electronic transmission of votes, that did not happen. We saw the intimidation and harassment, and manipulations at the ward collation, LG collation.

 

“So we need everybody to work together to save and rescue Lagos. We are in talks with several parties.

“A few parties have collapsed their structures for us. I expect that the PDP would do the same very soon.”

GRV also expressed hope that the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, will oversee a transparent electoral process, while stating that he is “prepared for the worse”

On INEC, he remarked, “We have got an injunction and a court order to mandate the INEC to follow its rules that it has set out and failure to do that, the entire election is null and void.

“So they must do the election transmission of voting from the polling units. That is on one hand.

“On the other hand; we know that a lot of these people might be compromised. Just like the last election, it was very shameful, to say the least.

“So we are hoping for the best but we are prepared for the worst, and we are moving into this election with the idea that what happened previously will repeat itself again. So we are ready for any outcome.”
