Jakande’s Four-Year Achievements Surpass APC’s — LP Governorship Candidate, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour

Aside from the incumbent governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, who is seeking reelection under the banner of the APC, Rhodes-Vivour has his Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) counterpart, Olajide Adediran aka Jandor to contend with in the exercise.

 

Labour Party Governorship candidate in Lagos state, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour has lashed out at the All Progressives Congress, saying  the achievements recorded by the Pa Lateef Jakande administration in Lagos from October 1979 to December 1983 surpassed that of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

 

He was reacting to insinuations that he’s not experienced to take the state to the next level.

 

“Alhaji Lateef Jakande never had any public sector experience but what he achieved in four years the APC government has not achieved in two decades,” he said.

 

“The visionary leader, Obafemi Awolowo, he had no public sector or governance experience but he moved the interest of the Yorubas to a level that people are still trying to aspire to. The fact is you must have empathy, self-capacity and courage to do the right thing.”

 

The LP candidate said youths, who are the new demography in politics, are interested in accountability.

 

“This government has run unaccountably for over two decades. They’ve empowered agberos, touts and thugs with so much violence. And they have not been brought to book.”

 

Aside from the incumbent governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, who is seeking reelection under the banner of the 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.
