The governorship candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in Lagos State, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour has revealed to everyone that cares to listen that he does not have a gofather.
This is coming after the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the state, Abdul-Azeez Olajide Adediran a.k.a Jandor had disclosed that Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour’s ambition to become the Governor of Lagos State is supported by PDP chieftain, Chief Bode George.
Rhodes-Vivour said; “In the Labour Party, there’s no godfather. I have no godfather.”
“I had no godfather in PDP. I only had mentors and leaders. There were rumours of money being embezzled. Money meant for rally, elections. The narrative he brought to get the ticket was that he would bring half of the APC to add to the PDP.”
“That was the story. But all of them have gone back to the APC now. Where is the value? He got the ticket because all the leaders of the party on national level, from Ayu, even Obasanjo supported him. And now when tables have turned, he’s talking about godfatherism.”
For those who don’t know, this is what Jandor said; “I fought against godfatherism in the APC, Lagos. My refusal in recognising (Chief) Bode George as a godfather in the PDP is a major reason for his endorsement of Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour of LP against my candidature in the PDP.”
