There is plot to eliminate Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour - Bode George
Bode George, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has alleged that there is a plot to eliminate Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, the governorship candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in Lagos state.
In a press conference held in Lagos on Monday, George warned that if anything untoward happens to Rhodes-Vivour, Nigerians should know who to hold responsible.
“We wish to inform Nigerians about the heinous plan, to secretly eliminate the Labour Party governorship candidate, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, the latest move by the take Lagos occupiers, to take him out of circulation before the election on Saturday,” George said.
“We, hereby, warn that, should anything happen to this vibrant bonafide Lagosian, who fate has thrown up to free our dear state from the stranglehold of marauders, Nigerians should know who to hold.”
George also called on Lagosians to reject “divisive politics of annihilation” and turn out in large numbers to vote for Rhodes-Vivour in the upcoming election on March 11.
“As we speak, there are grand designs, to provoke the peace-loving Nigerians, whose resolve is to effect change through the ballot box on Saturday, as threats are being issued against voters suspected to be willing to vote against incumbency,” he said.
“To this disposition, we, the Omo Eko Pataki, say it is the most heinous crime against humanity in this 21st century, and condemn such in all its entirety.
“We reject this divisive politics of annihilation of innocent Nigerians, which seek to create anarchy and provoke the anger of the citizenry. We wish to remind all the non-Lagosian agents of the Lagos state government, that Nigerians have lived together in peace, irrespective of any political party in power,” he added.
George urged voters in Lagos to come out in large numbers on March 11 to vote against the “plundering” that has plagued the state for over two decades.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
