Tinubu’s APC Tells Rhodes-Vivour To Stop Grandstanding

The Lagos chapter of Bola Tinubu’s All Progressives Congress (APC) has told the Labour Party (LP) governorship candidate in the state, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, to stop exhibiting immature grandstanding.

They asked him to approach the court and express displeasure over the result of the just concluded Gubernatorial poll held last Saturday. This was contained in a statement released by the Publicity Secretary of APC in the state, Seye Oladejo, today.

The statement accused Rhodes-Vivour of campaigning on unpretentious hate, religious bigotry and tribal rhetorics. They expressed shock that the law enforcement agencies “have not invited him for questioning for his incitement and call for anarchy because he lost an election.”

The party noted that Lagosians laboured in vain to identify the selling points, pedigree and substance of the Labour Guber Candidate manifestos during the electioneering campaign.

The statement reads in part, “He failed to discern the political sophistication of the largely civilized Lagos voters who were able to successfully draw a line between political choices, religious beliefs and tribal sentiments which were the kernels of Chinedu’s campaign. It’s now clear to all and sundry that his interpretation of free and fair elections is only when he wins. This is consistent with the position of his principal, Peter Obi, who has successfully hypnotized his minority followers.”

It accused Gbadebo of “ignoring incidents of violent attacks and killings of the APC supporters across the state and playing the victim by allegedly visiting unidentifiable and unverifiable patients.”

They noted that Rhodes’s healing process should start “by tendering unreserved apologies to all Lagosians for his attempt to desecrate the land, needless bloodletting, unprovoked insults to the ancestors and an attempted civilian coup by claiming victory like his principal after being roundly defeated.”

The party hinted that they will ignore his disrespect and disdain for traditional rulers and institutions through his utterances and postures.
