The Labour Party candidate made this statement on Thursday morning while speaking on Arise News.

“I fought against godfatherism in the APC, Lagos. My refusal in recognizing (Chief) Bode George as a godfather in the PDP is a major reason for his endorsement of Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour of LP against my candidature in the PDP,” Jandor said.

In his reaction, Rhodes-Vivour disclosed there was no godfather in his party neither did he personally have one. He however added that he only had mentors and leaders.

“In the Labour Party, there’s no godfather. I have no godfather. I had no godfather in PDP. I only had mentors and leaders.

“There were rumours of money being embezzled. Money meant for rally, elections. The narrative he brought to get the ticket was that he would bring half of the APC to add to the PDP.

“That was the story. But all of them have gone back to the APC now. Where is the value? He got the ticket because all the leaders of the party on national level, from Ayu, even Obasanjo supported him. And now when tables have turned, he’s talking about godfatherism.”
