Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour has emerged as the Lagos State Governorship candidate for the Labour Party (LP) for the 2023 General election.
HausaToday reports that Rhodes-Vivour scored 111 votes to defeat his opponent Mashood Salvador in the Labour Party substitution primary held on Wednesday in Ikeja, Lagos.
Salvador, a former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) State chairman polled 102 votes.
Recall that Rhodes, 39, had last month left the PDP to join the Labour Party to fulfil him ambition of running for the governorship of Lagos State.
Salvador had also defected from the All Progressive Congress (APC) last month as well.
Meanwhile, former state party chairman, Ifagbemi Awamaridi who had initially won the gubernatorial ticket of the party when the primaries were held months ago vowed to not let go of his ticket.
Awamaridi insists that he is recognised by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as the party’s flag bearer.
