The Governorship candidate of the Action Democratic Party in Lagos State, Babatunde Gbadamosi, has revealed that he will not challenge the result of the election in the state but would prepare for the next election.
The ADP governorship candidate stated that his decision was based on the fact that he has no confidence in the current electoral system.
“My decision is to wait and contest the next election and hopefully, the votes will count then.”
“I agree that the election in the state was an absolute fraud and a sham with many instances of open multiple voting recorded in places like Ikorodu, Lagos Island. However, I do not have any more resources to waste on a process in which I have no confidence.”
“We keep learning and I believe that the will of the people will surely prevail in future elections in the state.”
He also stated that the rigging was carried out by known persons who went from one polling unit to another with firearms.
Gbadamosi, however, called on the Independent National Electoral Commission to put its house in order so as not experience what took place during the 2019 general elections.
He revealed the reason to prosecute those involved in electoral malpractices in the 2019 general elections to serve as deterrent to others.
He challenged the 9th National Assembly to come up a penalty for offenders, to ensure much better polls in future.
