As the race for the office of the Governor heats up in Lagos State ahead of Saturday's Gubernatorial and State House of Assembly Elections, reactions have begun trailing a social media post made by Peoples Democratic Party chieftain, Lere Olayinka revealing the last-minute negotiations going on between the Labour Party (LP) and the PDP in the state.
Taking to his verified Facebook page a few hours ago, Olayinka, who contested for a seat in the House of Reps in last week's elections in Ekiti State, lamented that the PDP governorship candidate in Lagos, Dr. Abdul-Azeez Adediran popularly known as Jandor, is being asked to step down for his counterpart in the Labour Party, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour.
He wrote; "They are now asking my party's Guber Candidate in Lagos to step down for the Labour Party candidate. Na wa o."
Quite interestingly, Olayinka's remarks have sparked a flurry of arguments among Nigerians online as many trooped to the comments section to share their thoughts.
While some persons insisted that the demand being made by the Labour Party for the PDP to step down is correct, others, however, insisted that it should be the other way around.
