2023 Polls: Healing Not Possible Without Justice, LP’s Rhodes-Vivour Replies Tinubu

2 mins read

The Labour Labour Party (LP) gubernatorial candidate in last Saturday’s election in Lagos State, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour (GRV), has said there can never be healing without justice done to address ugly incidents that occurred during the just concluded elections.

Rhodes-Vivour stated this in response to Bola Tinubu’s call for healing after the elections were over.

The LP governorship candidate hinted that the elections in Lagos State were characterized by all sorts of violence.

Addressing a world press conference on Wednesday, Rhodes-Vivour vowed to fight the outcome of the polls which he termed “injustice”, with all legal means.

He added that the party will explore all available legal options to address alleged injustices that marred the governorship and State Assembly polls in the State.

His words: “Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu called for healing yesterday, but healing cannot happen without justice. The APC unleashed evil on Lagosians, diabolically with their fetish rites and curses during the day, and physical violence against all Lagosians, yet they want the peace of a graveyard, they want the healing of the dead.

“This was no election, it was violence on multiple levels, diabolically and physically.

“On this ambition, they sowed seeds that could potentially lead to an outcome like the Rwandan genocide. Lagosians, our enemies are not our neighbours or visitors, or fellow Lagosians with diverse tongues. Our common enemies are violence, insecurity, poverty, stagnation, corruption, and underdevelopment.

“It is these same people responsible for these, that have weaponized poverty and ethnicity to distract us from their evil endeavours and diabolical activities.

“We will never have a free and fair election under a Tinubu presidency.

“They have tried to destroy years of delicately balanced ethnic relations, years of intermarriage and friendships, years of commerce, and years of building Lagos into the economic juggernaut that it is. I call on the silent majority, decent and cultured Lagosians, indigenous Lagosians and Lagosians at large to speak out.

“It is enough of the worst of us defining the rest of us. On Saturday (March 18), we saw their vision for Lagos and agberocracy, and we will fight through all legal channels to birth OUR LOGOS,”
