The Governorship and House of Assembly elections day is Saturday 18 March. At this eleventh hour, the Labour Party in Lagos has waved off as fake reports that the party had gone into an alliance with the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Mr Olajide Adediran (Jandor).
Olubunmi Odesanya, the state Publicity Secretary, LP, in a statement said that its candidate, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, “has not gone into any form of alliance with any party nor stepped down for any candidate.
The statement read: “Our attention, has again, been drawn to the lies allegedly being spread by the candidate of the PDP, Mr Olajide Adediran and his team of media liars that the candidate of our great party, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour has stepped down for him, Adediran.
“This is a big fat lie from the pit of hell coming from a man who has seen his imminent defeat on the horizon. What Jandor is doing now is trying to steal from the owner.
“The PDP flag bearer, who could not pull any electoral weight in the Presidential election of February 25, 2023, suddenly wants to come, like a thief in the night, to take an undeserved glory. To avoid doubts, our candidate Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour is in the race and has not entered into any alliance with anybody.
“Also, Labour Party did not enter into any portfolio-sharing formula with any party. Please, disregard the fake news. Lagosians, we appreciate your support and wish to reiterate that our candidate is still very much in the race and with your support, he will be elected as the governor in tomorrow’s election.”
