This Gov Election In Lagos Is Disappointing – Bode George

Former Deputy National Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Olabode George has described the governorship and House of Assembly elections in Lagos State as disappointing. 

George gave the verdict after casting his vote at PU002 Cameron road, Eti Osa local government area, in Ikoyi, Lagos George on Saturday, condemning the violence and intimidation that characterized the exercise, which he said was replete with violence and voter apathy.

He said, “The reports I have been getting so far have been very depressing. Thugs were just smashing and snatching ballot boxes.

“Where I voted at Cameron was peaceful but the reports I have gotten so far from places like Ikeja, Shomolu, Kosofe and Shomolu were that thugs were scaring people, ballot boxes were snatched. I see this as voter apathy.

“What the security agencies are supposed to do is to ensure they protect lives and properties and aldo ensure that voters go about exercise their franchise without any encumbrance.

“But the reports I have gotten. So far is that people are complaining that there are intimidation and snatching of ballot boxes.

“This is disappointing. As far I am concerned, from the reports I have gotten so far, this is voter apathy.

“With this kind of election, how will the international community look at us?”
