The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Lagos State governorship candidate, Abdul-Azeez Olajide Adediran popularly known as Jandor, has revealed that the Labour Party governorship candidate in Lagos State, Rhodes Vivour, wanted to be his deputy, but he had to decline his application.
This was revealed by Jandor during an interview in a live video session with Daddy Freeze on Instagram.
According to Jandor, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour was in the PDP before he migrated to the Labour Party. Jandor explained that the reason why he declined Rhodes-Vivour’s application to be his deputy was because his godfather was trying to force Rhodes-Vivour on him.
Jandor stated that the reason why he left the All Progressive Congress (APC) in the first place was because of godfatherism.
So, he can’t leave a party because of that and still have to deal with the same thing in his new party.
Jandor explained that when he picked the ticket for the PDP primaries, Rhodes-Vivour’s godfather told him that he wanted “his son” (referring to Rhodes-Vivour) to be his deputy.
He said that this would not happen as he gave his reasons. He added that if Rhodes-Vivour really wanted to be his deputy, he should apply like everyone else, and the screening will be done accordingly.
After the scrutinization, he picked actress Funke Akindele instead.
This resulted into Rhodes-Vivour leaving the PDP for the Labour Party.
