Was It Not Obasanjo And Ayu That Helped You In Getting Your Ticket? – Rhodes-Vivour Slams Jandor Over Godfatherism Claims


Lagos Guber: Our Results Showed I Defeated Sanwo-Olu - Rhodes-Vivour

The governorship candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in Lagos State, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour has addressed reports that his candidacy is being sponsored by some godfathers.

The LP Governorship candidate stated that he has no godfather backing him.

He said this while addressing claims 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.

Speaking on Thursday morning during an interview on Arise TV, Rhodes-Vivour explained that he only has mentors and leaders.

The MIT graduate stated that it was quite ironic that Jandor was accusing him of godfatherism after getting his tickets with the help of the likes of former president Olusegun Obasanjo and PDP National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu.

He said, “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 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.”
