The governorship candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in Lagos State, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour has reacted to claims of being involved in a plot against the president-elect, Bola Tinubu in Lagos State.
The reports which emerged over the weekend had claimed in order to influence the outcome of the March 18 Lagos governorship polls against the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), and further spite Tinubu, the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele has handed a whopping N500m in new bank notes to the candidate of Labour Party.
The report further has it that Emefiele was plotting with a “billionaire retired general” from the north to allegedly provide funds to Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivor, the governorship candidate of the Labour Party in Lagos state, to enable him defeat Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the incumbent, and All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate in Saturday’s election.
However, reacting to the reports, Rhodes-Vivour in a statement via his Twitter account on Monday, described them as devilish and irresponsible pieces of fiction from the stables of the APC.
The Labour Party candidate added that the machinery of propaganda has failed and Lagosians are ready to embrace the new order.
He wrote: “I have read the fictional pieces from the devilish, deceptive, irresponsible and largely incoherent stable of the APC lying machinery. I will not respond to these tales by moonlight. I would only want to let lagosians know the heart and the character of those who have captured their state and deceived them for 20 years. This machinery has failed, this house has collapsed, it’s a new day and a new order is here. Lagosians, we have started and we will finish and I promise you, even the young minds they have brainwashed, hypnotized and incentivized with peanuts in exchange for their future will be proud of our administration in the next four years. We are prepared to liberate lagos from this legendary shackle.
“Good morning Lagos.”
