Why I Will Never Call Sanwo-Olu To Congratulate Him – Rhodes-Vivour


Rhodes-Vivour and Sanwo-Olu

The Labour Party (LP) governorship candidate in Lagos State, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, has condemned the outcome of Saturday’s election.

Naija News reports that Rhodes-Vivour made this known during an interview with Arise TV.

The LP flagbearer said he will never call to congratulate Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on his victory at the poll.

He described the election as a sham stating it is an illegality that has never been perpetrated in the history of the state.

Gbadebo also referenced how Labour Party agents were chased away from several polling units and supporters were not allowed to vote.

Giving a reason why he would not congratulate Sanwo-Olu, the LP candidate said the election was marred with so much violence that has set a bad precedence.
