Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, the Labour Party’s governorship candidate in Lagos, has said that the March 18 gubernatorial election has produced what he called “Agberocracy”.
GRV revealed this via his Twitter handle in response to a post by the US Mission in Nigeria on the just concluded election.
“Agberocracy has Produced an Illegitimate government. Now more than ever, it is time for #ourlagos,” he wrote.
The All Progressives Congress’s (APC) Babajide Sanwo-Olu was named the winner of the Lagos state gubernatorial election on Monday by the Independent National Election Commission, INEC.
According to the election body, Sanwo-Olu received 762,134 votes, beating Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour of the LP, who received 312,329 votes. Abdul-Azeez Adediran, alias Jandor, came in second with 62,449 votes.
However, the result has been rejected by GRV, who vowed to challenge the outcome of the election in court.
The US Embassy in Nigeria had expressed disapproval of incidences of violence and voter suppression during the House of Assembly and Governorship elections on March 18.
