Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, the 2023 Governorship candidate of the Labour Party, LP in Lagos State, has said that as long as the All Progressives Congress, APC, remains in power, the culture of impunity will worsen because they have no plans to build an economy that works for all Nigerians.

GRV stated this while reacting to news of touts seizing people’s phones and demanding ransom on the streets of Lagos.

He stated that the political elite use touts to commit impunity and cause violence in the community.

Filmmaker, Biodun Stephen, released a video on social media on Thursday, April 4, raising alarm over the presence of touts in Lagos state who boldly seize the phones of residents and then release them after their victims pay a ransom.

Reacting to the video, GRV wrote;

‘’This is a creation of the political elite in Lagos that have enshrined a culture of violence and impunity. These thugs are armed by politicians and used to win elections, after which the citizens are left at their mercy.

What is worse is that the extractive and discriminatory policy of the APC has worsened youth unemployment and poverty, forcing many into drugs and criminality.

As long as this party remains in power, this culture of impunity will worsen. They have no intention to build a modern economy that works for everyone but a feudal system where they can share palliatives to communities who kiss the ring.

There must be collective action in rooting out these parasitic politicians who leave behind chaos instead of prosperity.''
