Rhodes-Vivour warned that the festival should not serve as a ploy to prevent voters from exercising their civic rights.
“Traditional rulers know better not to do any festival that will in any way disenfranchise any voter,” he said in a video post shared on Wednesday.
Oro is a traditional Yoruba cult festival, in which women, visitors, and non-members are forbidden from witnessing their activities, and it usually comes with a curfew.
GRV has been tipped by several analysts to defeat the incumbent, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
His Labour Party won the presidential election in the State on February 25 despite reported intimidation by supporters of the APC presidential candidate.
The Labour Party’s governorship candidate insisted that Oro festival should not be used to scare people from coming out to vote, especially in the areas where LP won during the presidential election.
Labour Party defeated APC in Eti-Osa and Alimosho local councils where the festival is reportedly scheduled to take place.
GRV said: “We will come out in force and insist that [there will not be] any form of intimidation or harassment on Saturday, and our votes will count.”
