Nobody Will Hand Over Lagos To Someone Who Cannot Speak Yoruba - Ayo Fayose

Former governor of Lagos State, Ayodele Fayose, has stated that the Labour Party candidate, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, will not be able to win the upcoming gubernatorial election in Lagos State. With just a few days left before eligible Nigerian voters return to their polling units, Rhodes-Vivour is challenging the incumbent governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

Sanwo-Olu is facing strong opposition from the Peoples Democratic Party. However, Fayose claimed during a recent appearance on Your View on TVC that Rhodes-Vivour's inability to communicate in Yoruba would be a major obstacle to his success.

Fayose argued that nobody would hand over Lagos to someone who cannot speak Yoruba, and that neither the Labour Party nor the PDP would be able to deliver Lagos. He added that the people of Lagos should return Sanwo-Olu as governor because Lagos State is the commercial hub of Nigeria.

Fayose's remarks have sparked controversy among political observers and have raised questions about the importance of language in Nigerian politics.
