Sanwo-Olu urges Jandor, Rhodes-Vivour to join his government after tribunal victory

  • He extended an olive branch to fellow contestants to join us in building Lagos

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu expressed his view that the judgment of the governorship election petitions tribunal is a victory for everyone.

He encouraged Abdulazeez Adediran (also known as Jandor of the Peoples Democratic Party) and Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour (from the Labour Party) to collaborate with his government to contribute to the development of Lagos.

Mr Sanwo-Olu made these remarks during a press conference at the State House in Ikeja, following an 11-hour judgment by a three-man panel led by Justice Arum Ashom at the Roseline Omotosho Court, Ikeja.

He extended an invitation for Adediran and Rhodes-Vivour to join him in shaping the Lagos they envision.

“I extend, again, an olive branch to fellow contestants to join us in building the Lagos of our dreams,” said Mr Sanwo-Olu. “If they have the passion to serve, we can work together because there is room for everyone to contribute meaningfully to the Lagos we all desire to see.”

“It was a long, tough process, but we are grateful that the voice of the people of Lagos was heard and upheld. The deputy governor and I are very privileged and thankful to residents for standing for and by us. It is a victory for all, no winner, no loser,” stated Mr Sanwo-Olu.

“It is, however, an opportunity for more work and service. Therefore, we will continue to work harder to deliver the dividends of democracy to the people.”
