Lagos bye-elections: “Only qualified people must vote,” PDP candidate tells INEC

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Senatorial Candidate for the forthcoming Lagos East bye-election, Babatunde Gbadamosi says  INEC and security agencies must ensure only qualified people are allowed to vote.

He disclosed this through his  Media Director of the Campaign Organisation, Adetokunbo Pearese in an interview with NAN on Saturday.

According to him,  PDP would resume its door-to-door campaign strategy.

“INEC cannot conduct elections without security.

“Now that it has fixed the date, the important thing is for INEC to do the right thing: allow the votes to count and make sure that people who do not qualify do not vote.

“We remain on the fact the Abiru, (the Lagos East APC candidate) has two PVCs (Permanent Voter Cards) and that he didn’t register in the Lagos East Senatorial District, hence he is not qualified to run for the election.

“If anyone votes illegally such has committed a crime.

“We are fully prepared, everybody knows that Gbadamosi, the PDP candidate, is the better candidate, who came in a democratic fashion, and whose commitment is to improve the quality of lives of the people,” he said.

He said if  he  wins, he will  bring dividends of democracy to the people of Somolu, Kosofe, Ikorodu, Ibeju-Lekki and Epe, the five local governments that make up to the Lagos East Senatorial District..
