Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, the Labour Party (LP) candidate for governor in Lagos state for the 2023 general election, expressed the view that Peter Obi, the party’s presidential candidate, is the ideal leader for Nigeria.

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.”

Peter Obi secured the third position in the previous year’s polls, trailing behind President Bola Tinubu and Atiku Abubakar.

Meanwhile, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, who contested for the governorship, faced defeat against Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu. Despite challenging the election outcome up to the Supreme Court, a unanimous judgment in January 2024 upheld Sanwo-Olu’s victory in the March 18, 2023, governorship election. Two separate appeals questioning his win were dismissed by a five-member panel.
