The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Labour Party will not form an alliance ahead of the governorship 2023 polls in Lagos State, the party stated.
The Lagos chapter of the PDP has denied that their gubernatorial candidate Abdul-Azeez popularly known as Jandor will not merge with LP’s Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour to form a formidable force against Babajide Sanwo Olu who is representing the All Progressive Congress (APC).
There were claims that Rhodes-Vivour was in talks with the PDP but the party has released a statement on Twitter distancing itself from the claims.
A tweet with the handle @zuccinille claimed that Jandor would collapse his structure to work for a certain political party.
The party said: “PDP is a proper Democratic Party and it’s only the State Executive of the party as recognised by the National Body can be described as the custodian of the PDP under the leadership of the party’s Governorship Candidate Dr. Abdul-Azeez Olajide Adediran (Jandor).
“So whoever Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour is talking to is only representing themselves and not Lagos PDP, as no official conversation across the two-party lines at the moment, and Jandor is NOT planning to step down for any candidate.
“Jandor as a candidate in this election achieved making the Jandor brand a household name in Lagos on his own merit due to his immense hard work, and he’s not riding on any sudden waves.”
