Reports indicates severe pressure on Olajide Adediran, also known as Jandor, the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), to step down ahead of next week’s guber poll in Lagos state.

According to the report, some leaders in Lagos, led by Afenifere national leader Chief Ayo Adebanjo are in talks with Jandor to ally with Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, the governorship candidate of the Labour Party (LP).

Pa Adebanjo is said to be leading the elders to convince Jandor to step down.

The leaders believe LP’s outstanding performance in the February 25 presidential election, where its candidate Peter Obi defeated Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential flagbearer, an alliance with the PDP would make it easier to defeat Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

Another source quoted in the report said recent developments have shown that the LP has dislodged the PDP as the principal opposition party in Lagos state, hence the need to field Rhodes-Vivour as the governorship candidate while Jandor steps down.
