You Lack Spirit Of Sportsmanship, APC Tells Rhodes-Vivour

The All Progressives Con­gress (APC) has reacted to a statement credited to the Labour Party (LP) gover­norship candidate, Gbadebo Chinedu Rhodes-Vivour, on today’s elections.

Rhodes-Vivour reportedly accused the Independent Na­tional Electoral Commission (INEC) and the police of “pro­voking Lagosians”, warning, “if tonight Lagos catches fire, it is not our fault”.

He was quoted as saying, “A lot of places are still un­der attack by thugs and hoo­ligans of the APC.”

APC, in its reaction, stat­ed: “This scaremongering is typical of bad losers who lack the spirit of sportsmanship.”

The party said in a state­ment signed by Seye Oladejo, its spokesman, that the secu­rity agencies should note Mr. Rhodes-Vivour’s alleged threat of setting Lagos on fire as his predilection for violence and warmongering is well known to Nigerians.

It added: “Should there be any breakdown of law and order in any part of our state, law enforcement agen­cies should know who to grab – Mr. Rhodes-Vivour.

“We are compiling reports of how APC supporters were harassed and attacked today. Some of the reports are real­ly scary.

“Now the LP candidate is playing the victim. This old trick won’t work; discerning Lagosians know they are all lies deployed to attract sym­pathy.

“Our party has no need to be violent because we are sure of the glittering creden­tials of our candidate Baba­jide Olusola Sanwo-Olu, who will never be associated with violence.
