Gbadebo Fires Shots at Jandor: I’ve No Godfathers
Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, the governorship candidate of the Labour Party in Lagos State on Thursday said that his ambition to occupy the state governorship seat is not associated with any form of godfatherism.
This was as a result of a claim by Abdul-Azeez Olajide Adediran, popularly known as Jandor, the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP that he was being endorsed by godfathers like the PDP chieftain, Chief Bode George.
Jandor had earlier said on Tuesday, that Rhodes-Vivour was being endorsed by godfathers such as the PDP chieftain, Chief Bode George.
Jandor was quoted to have said on Tuesday that Rhodes-Vivour was being endorsed by godfathers such as the PDP chieftain, Chief Bode George.
“I fought against godfatherism in the APC, Lagos. My refusal in recognising (Chief) Bode George as a godfather in the PDP is a major reason for his endorsement of Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour of LP against my candidature in the PDP,” Jandor said.
Rhodes-Vivour refuted the claim on Thursday morning on Arise News that there was no godfather in the LP nor did he have one, adding that he only had mentors and leaders.
The Architect and activist also said that there were rumours of money being embezzled, which are meant for rallies and elections. He further said the narrative Jandor brought to get the ticket was that he would bring half of the APC to add to the PDP. But, all of them have gone back to the APC now.
According to the Labour party gubernatorial candidate, “He got the ticket because all the leaders of the party on national level, from Ayu, even Obasanjo supported him. And now when tables have turned, he’s talking about godfatherism.”
