In the run-up to the Lagos governorship election on March 18, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, the Labour Party’s (LP) candidate, expects the state’s Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to join forces with him to protect Lagos. Rhodes-Vivour, commonly known as GRV, shared his thoughts during an exclusive interview with Vanguard’s online TV show, Politics Hub.
GRV expressed optimism that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) will ensure a fair election process, while also preparing for potential setbacks. He mentioned his previous affiliation with the PDP, where he served as a senatorial candidate in 2019 and had the most votes in the party. He believes that collaboration is essential for a just election process and expects the PDP to unite with his campaign soon.
Regarding INEC, GRV highlighted the need for the organization to follow its rules and employ electronic voting transmission from polling units. He also mentioned the possibility of some individuals being compromised, as seen in the last election, and stated that he is prepared for any outcome.
GRV criticized the current state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, for avoiding public debates, calling it disrespectful to Lagosians. He further addressed rumors about his ethnic heritage in Lagos, calling them insulting and emphasizing the historical significance of the Rhodes-Vivour family in the area.
