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.

NaijaNews reports 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 shackles of tyranny.

He also stated that the postponement of the election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) would not prevent him from defeating Sanwo-Olu and other party candidates.

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

He said, “We know that the goal and what we are going through are far bigger than I or 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 shackles of tyranny.

“A Lagos State where the inner roads will work, where our people will have quality healthcare, water, and quality public education, not one where parents keep struggling 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 and that can articulate their vision and are 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 unit results electronically during the election.

He said that young people came out en masse, stood their ground, and showed that they had the structure and power to elect the leaders they wanted.
The LP candidate added that the youths would resist all forms of intimidation or harassment like never before in the forthcoming elections.

Wike vs Fubara: You are disrespecting Tinubu—APC Chairman blasts Rivers governor

The Rivers State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has accused Governor Sim Fubara of disrespecting President Bola Tinubu amid his rift with the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike.

The APC Caretaker Committee Chairman in the state, Tony Okocha, said Fubara has not fulfilled all the proclamations made by Tinubu at the peace deal with Wike.

He spoke at the party’s secretariat in Port Harcourt while addressing defectors joining the party.

Okocha said: “It will amount to barefaced disobedience for Gov. Siminalayi not to follow all eight indices in the proclamation made by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu in response to the Rivers State political crisis.

“His continued refusal to present the Rivers State 2024 budget to a properly constituted Rivers State House of Assembly under Rt Hon Martin Amaewhule (Speaker), as captured in index 6.

“The flagrant cold feet in the conduct of local government elections (see index 8) are signs of disrespect for the office of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“The APC Rivers (which is Mr. President‘s Party) stoutly condemns this act of disobedience perpetrated by Gov. Fubara and warns against the likely concomitant fallouts.”
