Recall that Rhodes, 39, quit the PDP last month to join the Labour Party in order to pursue his dream of becoming governor of Lagos State.


Last month, Salvador left the All Progressive Congress (APC) as well.

Lamidi Apapa, the LP’s deputy national chairman, had reported that 215 registered voters had cast ballots in the primary poll.

Two invalid votes were registered in the election.

Babatunde Gbadamosi, a third candidate for governor, stayed out of the primary.
