Gbadebo Rhodes Declares No Propaganda Will Stop His Victory Against Sanwo-Olu



The Labour Party (LP) Governorship candidate in Lagos State, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, has boasted about defeating the incumbent governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

The Editor Nigeria learnt that Gbadebo during a meeting tagged “Youth O’ Clock” in Ikeja on Thursday, described the series of propaganda against him as baseless and laughable.

According to him, no amount of propaganda deployed against him can stop his desire to build a new Lagos and free the state from the shackle hold of tyranny.

He also said the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) postponement of the poll would not stop him from defeating Sanwo-Olu and candidates of other parties.

Gbadebo noted that Nigerian youths are 90 percent close to taking over governance and having their dream country materialize.


He said: “We know that the goal and what we are going through is far bigger than I and any of us.

“It is a project that will lift the lives of millions of Lagosians up and in turn lift the lives of many Nigerians up. It is a project to free Lagos from the shackle hold of tyranny.

“A Lagos State where the inner roads will work, where our people will have quality healthcare, water, quality public education, not one where parents keep struggling trying to find how to pay school fees for their children to go to private school.

“We are already 90 percent there. We need to bring this thing home. I want you to understand that the moment we take Lagos, this fire of a new type of politics will engulf Nigeria.


“You start to find politicians that mean well for the people, that can articulate their vision and positive about change.

“No more status quo, we are changing the narrative to have a new Lagos and a new Nigeria. We will set a new standard”

While expressing confidence that the LP’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi would retrieve his alleged stolen mandate, Rhodes-Vivour said that he was disappointed by INEC’s inability to transmit polling units’ results electronically during the election.

He said that young people came out en mass, stood their ground, and showed that they were the structure and with power to elect the leaders they want.


The LP candidate added the youths would resist all forms of intimidation or harassment like never seen before in the forthcoming elections.
