Published

on

Olawale Rhodes-Vivour, father of Labour Party governorship candidate, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, has said his son will bring character and solutions to governance in Lagos state.

Olawale said this while speaking at a press conference in Lagos on Wednesday.

He described Gbadebo as solution-driven and a go-getter, noting how the ENDSARs momentum brought about Peter Obi at the national level and his son on the gubernatorial level.

He said, ”He [Gbadebo] is always revolted by injustice, by anything that is unfair, immediatwly he reacts, and begins to lead processions and march, and goes on TV. Gbadebo is just good, he is a good man, he reacts to anything negative.

”You find that Gbadebo has this spirit of love, he can easily go into your situation and understand it, and sit down with you and ring solution to it, this is what he will bring to government,

”The other day at MIT, he called me he is spending three days in the studio; I challenged him, and he said he has a project to finish; this is his character: he does not leave things halfway, he starts and finishes it.

Olawale stated that a vote for Labour Party in the state is a vote against evil.

He urged Lagosians to come out en masse on March 11th to give the party a resounding victory.

He said, ”It is true that there is this momentum that commenced at the end of ENDSARs, and that momentum, is a momentum of character: Nigerians had just had enough – enough is enough, they want to have good govt, decent people in position of power, that is all they ask of. This momentum itself at the end of SARSm, there was nobody who was the face of the momentum, but the momentum begins to look for its own officials, and on the national level it found Peter Obi and Datti, we know their antecedents, and they are people we can be proud of, if I go anywhere in the world and Datti and Obi are my president, I will not be afraid.

“They have treasury of Lagos state for the last 24 years, this is what we are fighting against, and we have prevailed, that can only be God, I want to encourage us that it is possible to prevail against evil, come out on March 11th and make it a resounding victory for us.”

* Asks Nigerians to Always Seek Lawful Means in Seeking Redress

By Ojone Grace Odaudu

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has felicitated with Governors Simi Fubara of Rivers State and Agbu Kefas of Taraba State respectively on the affirmation of their electoral victories by the Supreme Court.

In a post on his ‘X’ handle, the Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 elections described the victory as not only for the governors, but also the Peoples Democratic Party, the Nigerian electorate and all lovers of democracy and justice.

He enjoined all Nigerians to be vigilant and to always rely on lawful means in seeking redress as he has always done.

The post:

“I celebrate with governors @SimFubaraKSC of Rivers State and @GovAgbuKefas of Taraba State, whose victory at last year’s gubernatorial election polls were unanimously affirmed today by the Supreme Court. No doubt this is not just personal victory but victory for the PDP family, the Nigerian electorate, and all lovers of Democracy and Justice.

Indeed, their victory has reinforced the hope of the survival of our democracy, which citizens are getting disillusioned and disenchanted with the APC’s win-at-all-cost policy and brazen disregard for the rule of law.

I enjoin all Nigerians to be vigilant and to always rely on lawful means in seeking redress as I have always done, and by the grace of God, we shall triumph.

Accept my congratulations, Your Excellencies. -AA”

Published

The Supreme Court on Friday affirmed the elections of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State, effectively killing the appeals filed by the governorship candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party and the Labour Party in the state.

Similarly, the apex court also upheld the election of Bauchi State governor, Senator Bala Mohammed, ruling against the appeal by the candidate of the All Progressives Congress,

In a twist of fates, the court upturned the verdict of the court of appeal which nullified the election of Governor Abba Yusuf of Kano State, saying that the appellate court’s decision to uphold the tribunal’s earlier decision was wrong.
