Governorship candidate of the Labour Party in Saturday’s gubernatorial poll, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour (GRV) has said President-Elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s call for healing after the elections cannot happen without justice to all the alleged infractions that happened during the electoral process that is now nearing completion. The candidate also said the party will explore all available legal options to address alleged injustices that marred the governorship and assembly polls in the state.
Recall that the governorship poll which held on Saturday, March 18 2023 was a three-horse race that had incumbent Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdul-Azeez Adediran of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP and Rhodes-Vivour slug it out with each other.
At end of the contest, Governor Sanwo-Olu took the day. The Returning Officer, Prof Adenike Oladiji while declaring the results on Monday said Sanwo-Olu, polled a total of 762,134 votes to defeat his closest rival, Rhodes-Vivour who polled a total of 312,329 votes. PDP’s Adediran polled a total of 62,449 votes. Rhodes-Vivour during a world press conference on Wednesday said his message during the campaigns was based on empathy, love, good governance devoid of the rancor.
