Peter Obi not the politician we need – Vivour-Rhodes, Lagos LP guber candidate


The Labour Party, LP, governorship candidate in Lagos state for the 2023 general election, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, has said that the party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, is the leader Nigeria needs.

Rhodes-Vivour, speaking on the Honest Bunch Podcast, however said Obi is not the politician “we need for us”.

“Peter Obi is the leader that we need for Nigeria, but not the politician we need for us,” he said.

Rhodes-Vivour also insisted “Peter (Obi) does not buy votes. He won Lagos without buying votes.”

Obi finished in third position during last year’s polls, behind President Bola Tinubu and Atiku Abubakar.

On his part, Rhodes-Vivour lost the gubernatorial election to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

Rhodes-Vivour challenged the election result all the way to the Supreme Court, where a five-member panel in a unanimous judgment delivered in January 2024, affirmed the declaration of Sanwo-Olu as the winner of the March 18, 2023 governorship election, after dismissing two separate appeals challenging his victory.
