Rhodes-Vivour defeats Salvador to clinch Lagos LP guber ticket

A former chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State, Mr Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, has emerged as the governorship candidate of the Labour Party (LP) for the 2023 general elections in the state.

Rhodes-Vivour who dumped PDP for LP last month, polled 111 votes to defeat Hon. Moshood Salvador who polled 102.

Salvador, few weeks ago defected from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to the LP, claiming that he was not fairly treated in the APC.

Announcing the result, the returning officer for the primary election, the Deputy National Chairman of the party, Mr Bashir Apampa said 216 delegates were registered for the exercise while three votes were declared voided.

Reacting after the election, Salvador rejected the outcome of the exercise, saying that it was marred with irregularities.
