As the 2023 gubernatorial election draws nigh, Nollywood actress, Iyabo Ojo has revealed that she is finding it challenging to select a candidate to vote for among the governorship candidates in Lagos State.
In her analysis of the Lagos State governorship candidates, Iyabo Ojo shared her thoughts on Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the incumbent governor and All Progressive Congress (APC) candidate. While acknowledging his achievements, Iyabo admitted that she has never been a fan of the APC. She expressed her disappointment with Sanwo-Olu’s handling of the 2020 End SARS protest, which resulted in the loss of lives. Iyabo believes that Sanwo-Olu could have done better.
Regarding the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Iyabo said that if she were to disregard emotions and support a candidate solely on merit, she would back her colleague and friend Funke Akindele. However, Iyabo emphasized the importance of making a fair judgment based on a wider perspective.
Finally, Iyabo shared her thoughts on Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, the Labour Party’s candidate. Although she observed his promising vision for leadership in Lagos, she expressed concerns about conflicting reports on his experience.
“This upcoming Lagos State gubernatorial elections…. hmmm. 🤔e go hard me small. My Take
“1. APC: Though this party has never been my prerogative, but give it to Mr Sanwoolu, I have no issues with his achievements and his government. What I find hazy and can’t shake off is how the unfortunate endsars saga played out. I maintain he should have done better.
“2. PDP: If I were to be sentimental, I would take back my words & certainly pitch with my dear friend Funke, but i must see beyond emotions. so I am unable to make a fair judgment.
“3. LP: I have watched closely this young man’s dream to take on the mantle of leadership of our dearly beloved state. Whilst he has a promising resume, one can not overlook the number of conflicting reports on his pedigree and experience…..🤔”
