Reports emerging from Lagos State, Nigeria’s commercial capital, say that the governorship candidate of the Labour Party(LP), Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, has lost his polling unit to the incumbent governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu of the All Progressives Congress(APC).
Governor Babajide-Sanwo-Olu polled 29 votes as against 18 votes polled by Gbadebo Rhodes-Viviour, popularly known as GRV. The candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr Abdulazeez Olajide Adeniran otherwise known as Jandor scored two votes when the results of the governorship election were announced this afternoon.
The house of assembly election results were no different as the candidate of the APC for that constituency scored 34 votes, while LP and PDP polled 15 and 1 votes respectively.
While commenting on today’s election, Gbadebo decried the way the election was conducted in some areas of the state.
He said: “A peaceful democratic process has been turned into war by the ruling party because people want to express their choice. The point of governance is to preserve and protect lives, not take them. Don’t despair, we are stronger than them.”
