- How He Joined IPOB
- His Igbo names revealed
For those who are still undecided about who to vote as the Governor of Lagos State in the March 11, 2023 Governorship Election, it is important for them to know that making a wrong move will spell doom for the Centre of Excellence.
We were informed that a candidate that should never be elected as the Governor of the highly metropolitan state is the Governorship Candidate of the Labour Party, Mr. Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour.
Information from Apapo Oodua Koya, AOKOYA Intelligence Unit revealed that Gbadebo actually had good education having attended elite primary school beginning from Christland in Lagos, Nottingham and Paris plus the University of Lagos.
It was revealed that one thing to note about the background of Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour is that he was born out of wedlock as his mother never married his father.
It was revealed that his mother is bitter after the experience she had with his father to the extent that he took Gbadebo away.
Gbadebo was said to have been fully adopted by his mother, who hails from Anambra State, and his other names were given as Chinedu, Ekweremadu and Okafor, while his wife, Nkechi is from Abia State.
Those who know much about Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour revealed that he was driven by hate against his father, who did not accept him and by implication, against the Yoruba, the tribe of his father, adding that he is blood bound with his mother and Igbo, his real identity.
Sequel to the choice of Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour as the Governorship Candidate of the Labour Party in Lagos State, we were informed that five candidates were presented to the Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party, Mr Peter Obi to lead Lagos.
Obi was said to have insisted on Gbadebo Chinedu Rhodes-Vivour and rejected the other four being fully Yoruba, all from Lagos Island.
The reason, we were told, is because Chinedu, who speaks Ibo fluently, is from Anambra, the birthplace of Peter Obi.
Gbadebo Chinedu Rhodes-Vivour reportedly joined the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in 2016 in Onitsha, Anambra State and he was allegedly the Deputy Commander for Anambra State between 2016 and 2017.
He was said to have held series of meetings with the detained leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu in London, the United Kingdom.
It will be recalled that IPOB once said that there won’t be elections in the South East.
We gathered that one of the reasons IPOB stopped the attacks in the South East to allow the election to hold was the negotiation they had with Obi that IPOB should produce the LP candidate in Lagos State, which was why the group was said to have in turn gave massive votes to Obi in the South East.
Sources said that many IPOB members and Igbos transferred their PVCs to Lagos State to support Gbadebo.
“Igbos came from West Africa sub-region to register in Lagos as voters, and the Igbos held constant secret meetings mobilising for Gbadebo.
“At present, IPOB provides his covert security, when he goes out to campaign apart from police escort,” said a source, who added that such a fellow should not be allowed to be the next Governor of Lagos State, the former Federal Capital of Nigeria, a base of the Yorubas and the commercial nerve center of Nigeria.
