The All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused the Labour Party (LP) governorship candidate, Gbadebo Chinedu Rhodes-Vivour, of being a bad loser who lacks the spirit of sportsmanship.

In a statement, yesterday, APC spokesman, Seye Oladejo, said: “The attention of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has been drawn to a statement made by Labour Party (LP) governorship candidate Gbadebo Chinedu Rhodes-Vivour on today’s elections.

“He accuses the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the police of ‘provoking Lagosians’ and warning that ‘if tonight Lagos catches fire, it is not our fault’. He says ‘a lot of places are still under attack by thugs and hooligans of the APC’.

“This scaremongering is typical of bad losers who lack the spirit of sportsmanship.”

Oladejo stated that security agencies should note that Rhodes-Vivour’s threat to set Lagos on fire as his predilection for violence and warmongering is well known to Nigerians.

“Should there be any breakdown of law and order in any part of our state, law enforcement agencies should know who to grab – 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. ’

“We advise LP and its candidate to embrace peace instead of threatening to bring down the roof on everybody. It won’t work.”
