Rhodes-Vivour: APC, LP Speak On Fear Of Upset In Lagos Gov’ship Poll

March 7, 2023

As Nigerians go to the poll on Saturday, 11th March 2023 to elect their governors and state House Assembly members, voters in Lagos State have continued to share their worst fears and best hopes for what may unfold.

Some observers believe that the big surprise sprung by the Labour Party (LP) candidate, Mr Peter Obi by causing a political earthquake in Lagos State, where the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu dominated politics for a quarter century, winning the state in the country’s hotly contested presidential election with narrow margin could recur in the governorship election.

It would be recalled that Obi polled 582,454 votes to defeat Tinubu who polled 572,606 votes in the results announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

While some observers believe that the governorship candidate of the Labour Party, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, will ride on the wings of the Labour Party to defeat the incumbent Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, others dismiss it with a wave of the hands in the sense that the dynamics of presidential and governorship elections in the cosmopolitan state has always been different.

As far as they are concerned, the Labour Party candidate, Mr Peter Obi who got the massive support of his kinsmen highly concentrated in Lagos State was the rave not Gbadebor Rhodes-Vivour.

Speaking on the chances of the their party’s candidate, Lagos State publicity secretary of Labour Party,  Mrs Olubunmi Odesanya said, ‘’Our party will spring surprises, the people of Lagos State, love our party, and they are ready to vote for us en masses.
