Governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP in Lagos State, Abdul-Azeez Adediran, popular as Jandor, has dismissed possibility of forming an alliance with his counterpart of the Labour Party, LP, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour.

There have been speculations that Labour Party is working towards forming an alliance to ouster the ruling party in the state following the LP’s unprecedented victory in the February 25 presidential poll in the state.

However, Jandor has laid the speculations to rest, saying when his “project” started years ago, it was beyond a desire to become governor.

He said, “If it’s to be governor, I could have been governor where I was coming from, but I chose this route.”

The PDP governorship candidate noted that when talks of an alliance began “flying around,” the PDP tabled the matter, “even though we [Gbadebo and I] haven’t sat together to discuss it”.

He added, “We came ourselves to look at the issue and say, ‘Within us, what do we want to do? Do we want to put an end to a dynasty that has held us by the jugular for over two decades? Where do we go from here?’”

According to him, the party decided to analyse every issue critically.
