by Victor Ndubuisi

The Lagos State Deputy Governor, Obafemi Hamzat has slammed governorship candidates of both the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Abdul-Azeez Adediran (aka Jandor); and his Labour Party (LP) counterpart, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour.

According to him, their claims of widespread irregularities, violence, and voter intimidation during the state’s recently concluded governorship elections were unfounded.

Newsmen reported that Hamzat during a live interview on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily on Tuesday stated both opposition candidates were not looking at the true causes that led to their losing out in the election.

The Lagos deputy governor, who described the opposition’s incapacity to manage their organizations as a major reason why they lost stated that the departure of certain Lagos PDP and Labour Party defectors had affected their campaign for the governorship poll.


Hamzat advanced that “I’ve listened to all sorts of commentary about this election and I think it’s very unkind from Nigerians.

“Unfortunately, people tend to be bad losers. So, instead of re-examining what exactly happened: ‘How do I get better?’ The PDP candidate was saying, ‘We contested against INEC.’ No. The reality was, you lost all your party members.

“Ade Dosunmu left your party, Wahab Owokoniran left your party. [Funsho] Doherty left your party – who is the chairman of the PCC for Atiku/Okowa and Jandor in Lagos?

“His own director, the campaign director for the PDP candidate resigned and left. So, you lost everybody around you. The question is, how did you manage your party? You didn’t do well.

“Sunbo Onitiri who contested for the Senate for Central left the party. The Chairman of the party before, [Kayode] Salako, left the party and said that the man is all sorts of things.”
