It’s Possible To Prevail Against Evil’, LP Gov Candidate’s Father Tells Lagosians….
Written by City Radio on March 8, 2023
Olawale Rhodes-Vivour, the father of Labour Party (LP) Governorship Candidate, Gbadebo, has urged Lagosians to come out and vote his son in the March 11 poll in the state.
The lawyer stated this at a press conference on Wednesday in the Ikeja area of Lagos when he endorsed his son for poll, saying Gbadebo has character and is rugged to finish what he has started.
Olawale also said it is possible to “prevail against evil” if Lagosians come out en masse and vote his son.
“Don’t be afraid, don’t be scared, come out on the 11th. We have put in place strategies,” the LP governorship candidate’s father said. “We are going to be proactive and not reactive on the 11th because if we got 900,000 votes and you gave us 500,000 votes, even though we beat you, still affect the overall turnout of the situation.”
He said Nigerians have had enough and they just want normal, decent people in the position of power.
Aside from the incumbent governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, who is seeking reelection under the banner of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Rhodes-Vivour has his Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) counterpart, Olajide Adediran aka Jandor to contend with in the exercise.
In the presidential election, LP’s Obi polled 582,454 votes in Lagos to trounce the flag bearer of the APC, Bola Tinubu who scored 572,606 votes.
In total, Obi won 11 states and the Federal Capital Territory but Tinubu scored the highest votes in total and was later on Wednesday announced the winner of the poll and Nigeria’s President-elect.
