LP’s Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour loses polling unit to Sanwo-Olu




THE candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Gbadebo Rhodes Vivour, lost in his polling unit to the incumbent, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in today’s governorship election.

Rhodes-Vivour garnered 18 votes against his rival’s 29 at his polling unit 045, Oshinfila Street, Anifowose, Ikeja.

The LP candidate is believed to be the main hurdle for the governor to win a second term.

The Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) Olajide Adeniran, popularly known as Jandor, got two votes.

Sanwo-Olu, in his own polling unit 006, St. Stephen Adeniji-Adele, Lagos Island, near his family house, defeated Rhodes-Vivour by 121 to two votes.

Other parties, namely the PDP, African Development Congress (ADC) and Accord Party, secured a vote each.
