Rhodes-Vivour demands Sanwo-Olu’s resignation over misuse of public fundsnds Sanwo-Olu’s resignation over misuse of public funds

May Your Victory Usher In A Better Lagos – Peter Obi Sends Message To Rhodes-Vivour

The Labour Party’s gubernatorial candidate for Lagos State in the 2023 general election, Gbadebo Rhodes Vivour, has demanded the immediate resignation of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

This request comes after a statement made by the state’s Commissioner of Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotosho, guaranteeing that Sanwo-Olu would not misuse public funds.

Vivour, however, has refuted this claim, stating in a press release that the state government is allocating substantial amounts of public funds to activities that do not directly benefit the people.

He expressed concern about the economic difficulties faced by Lagos residents, including skyrocketing inflation, and criticized the alleged misappropriation of public funds.


In support of his argument, Vivour referred to a document titled ‘JANUARY-AWARD -2 023,’ which he asserts can be found on the Lagos Public Procurement Agency’s official website.

According to Vivour, this document includes payments made for legal representation of Governor Sanwo-Olu in a lawsuit, amounting to a total of N200,000,000 paid to four individuals.


Vivour said, “Item 16 – 19 of the documents contains a description of payments as ‘Instruction to represent and defend Mr Sanwo-olu Babajide Olusola In: Suit No; FHC /CS/1979/2022 – Peoples democratic party vs INEC and 42 ors. This cumulative sum of N200,000,000 was paid to 4 different law firms.

“Furthermore, another document from the same official website titled JUNE AWARD 2023 on Item 52, describes a payment as -Provision of furniture items at campaign office, GRA Ikeja for the sum of N6,116,750. Item 276 on the July Award 2023 documents describes another payment as – DECORATION OF VENUE FOR POLITICAL DELEGATES CONGRESS for the sum of N20,000,000.


“At a time when Lagosians are grappling with record inflation, soaring poverty rates, and unprecedented unemployment caused by the incompetence of both the previous and current administration, it is disheartening to learn that the state government is allocating substantial sums of public funds for activities that do not directly benefit the populace.

“In most liberal democracies, like the UK where the governor recently returned from seeking international investment, this reckless abuse of office will amount to an impeachable offence.

“I strongly condemn this misuse of taxpayers’ money by the Lagos State Government and call for the Governor’s immediate resignation.”
