The Lagos State governorship candidate of the Labour Party, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, has promised to resist any form of voter intimidation and harassment in the forthcoming governorship and House of Assembly elections.
Rhodes-Vivour made this statement during an appearance on Channels Television on Thursday, asserting that his focus is the security and safety of Lagosians that would come out en masse and vote for their preferred candidate.
He said, “My focus now is on security and ensuring that people come out to vote and they are not intimidated or harassed because any form of intimidation or harassment will be met with resistance. It’s just that simple.
“It is not about rushing an election; it is about getting it right and that is why we got the injunction to ensure that INEC actually follows its processes. There are a lot of things that must be done right if we want to get this country on the right path.
The LP governorship candidate, however, stated that following the controversies surrounding the February 25 polls, the Independent National Electoral Commission would have to win the trust of Nigerians with the conduct and outcome of the March 18 polls.
