Why Rhodes-Vivour Lost Lagos Guber Elections – Former Labour Chairman Reveals
The former chairman of the Labour Party (LP) in Lagos State, Kayode Salako has given reasons why the gubernatorial candidate of the party, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour lost the March 18th governorship election.
Salako, during an interview with News Central TV said Rhodes-Vivour became arrogant and too full of himself after the party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi won the state during the February 25 presidential election.
The Former chairman noted that after the former Anambra State governor won Lagos state, Rhodes-Vivour began to believe that he would be the next governor of Lagos State and this made him publicly endorse candidates from the opposition party.
According to Kayode Salako, he said, “When Peter Obi won in Lagos State during the Saturday 25th presidential polls, all of us were involved. It was a game of all of us because everybody was involved. But after the victory of the party at the presidential election, pride came to Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, and he started seeing himself as the governor of Lagos State when the election wasn’t even conducted yet.”
