Lagos guber: Jandor accusing me of having a godfather is very ironic -LP’s Rhodes-Vivour



The governorship candidate of the Labour Party, LP, in Lagos State, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, has debunked claims that some godfathers pushed him to run for the position.


The LP governorship candidate was responding to the claim by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP governorship candidate Abdul-Azeez Olajide Adediran, also known as Jandor, who on Tuesday said that his LP counterpart is being backed by godfathers such as Chief Bode George.


Appearing on Arise Television Thursday morning, 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 [Jandor accusing me of having a godfather] is very ironic.


“There were rumours of money being embezzled. Money meant for the rally and 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 party leaders on the national level, from Ayu, even Obasanjo, supported him. And now, when tables have turned, he’s talking about godfatherism.”
