Gbadamosi claims Lagos election will be rigged
Lagos State Action Democratic Party (ADP) governorship candidate, Babatunde Gbadamosi, yesterday, described the logistics provided by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC’s) in the ongoing Governorship and House of Assembly elections as inefficient.
He also expressed pessimism that the outcome of the elections would favour him, as it would be rigged. He further stated that the state deserves the kind of leader it elects.
According to Gbadamosi, if the result was not rigged at the polling unit, it would be rigged at the collating centre.
He said despite the funding available to the commission, it was still unable to conduct an election without logistical challenges.
He lamented that voting materials were delivered late at his polling unit 14, Allison Junction, Isele, Ikorodu, reason voting commenced at 10:50 am.
He said late arrival of voting materials was the same in most of the polling units around his ward.
Gbadamosi said he had lost faith in the electoral body and had no choice than to accept the outcome of the election, as it had been predetermined.
However, Rotimi Ogunleye, Lagos State Commissioner for Physical Planning, who shares same polling unit with Gbadamosi, expressed optimism of APC winning the elections.
He said he was impressed with the turnouts, which shows willingness to choose their leaders.
