Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, GRV, a candidate for governor on the Labour Party in Lagos, claimed that the March 18 election had given rise to “Agberocracy.”
In response to a post by the US Mission in Nigeria about the recently held election, GRV revealed this via his Twitter account.
“The government created by agberocracy is illegitimate. It’s time for #ourlagos now more than ever,” he wrote.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate Babajide Sanwo-Olu was named the winner of the Lagos state election on Monday by the Independent National Election Commission, INEC.
The electoral board said that Sanwo-Olu received 762,134 votes, defeating Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour of the LP, who received 312,329 votes, and Abdul-Azeez Adediran, nicknamed Jandor, who received 62,449 votes.
But, GRV had disregarded the results and said that he would pursue legal action.
The 18 March gubernatorial and House of Assembly elections were marred by violence and voting intimidation, according to the US Mission in Nigeria.
