The Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu, on Thursday declared his support for the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu of the ruling All Progressive Congress(APC) when the governorship candidate of the Labour Party, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour visited his palace.
The top monarch in the state, who praised the LP flag bearer, for coming out to contest because he had every right to do so, said that his support was for Sanwo-Olu who the monarch projected would win the election on Saturday, March 18.
Akiolu, who prayed for Rhodes-Vivour and wished him well in his future endeavors, maintained that Rhodes-Vivour vying was not wrong.
The monarch stated that he (Rhodes-Vivour) had a bright future, but that he would not win this election.
“Please, don’t relent after this contest but I am fully behind Sanwo-Olu,” he told Rhodes-Vivour.
