#NigeriaDecides2023: Sanwo-Olu Casts His Vote In Lagos, Condemns Electoral Violence

The governor, who is seeking re-election under the All Progressive Congress (APC), voted alongside his wife, Dr. Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu, at Eiyekole Polling Unit, St. Stephen Primary School, Lagos Island Local Government.

Speaking with journalists after exercising his franchise, Sanwo-Olu said the people of the state have the right to vote their choice freely, stressing that the process was not meant to be violent one.

He said, “We have just voted this morning. I’m happy with the turn out of voters. We can see that INEC came out on time.”

“I think it is time for us as people to see this process as not meant to be a process for violence. This contest is about peace, progress and prosperity about our state and the country as a whole. I advise everyone to conduct theirselves as family”

Commenting on a viral video on social media over alleged vote suppression, the governor said, he would not comment on it as it was unverifiable.

He noted, “We have seen a disturbing video which is not verifiable. I can’t comment on that but so far this election has been calm. All our security agencies are vigilant and it is devoid of acrimony and intimidation, that is acceptable”.

Sanwo-Olu is in the contest with a number of candidates including Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour of the Labour Party (LP) and Abdulazeez Olajide Adediran of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) among others.

KanyiDaily recalls that Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour had also cast his vote and alleged that the All Progressives Congress, APC-led government is suppressing and intimidating voters in Lagos.
