THE Lagos State Governorship Candidate under the Labour Party (LP), Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour has said that if he is elected in the March 18 election, his administration will put an end to AGBERO menace.
He gave the assurance while speaking at the Youth O’clock breakfast meeting organised by the ‘Obidient Movement’ in Ikeja GRA Lagos, vowing that the Labour Party would resist any form of voters’ intimidation or harassment.
He stressed that the event was part of the mission to free Lagos from shackles holding the State down.
In an apparent response to the claims that he’s not a Yoruba man and that he doesn’t understand Yoruba, Rhodes-Vivour said the people of Lagos want good governance regardless of the language a leader speaks or the tribe he belongs to.

He noted that he is a proper cosmopolitan Lagosian having roots with the Yoruba people and having been trained in best institutions in the world.
The LP candidate said Lagos has always existed in harmony but politicians whip up ethnicity to divide the people of the state.
Rhodes-Vivour said part of his mission is to create Lagos that works for all and the need to end the ‘agbero’ system in the state, that has created a lot of safety hazards.
Agbero is a popular street name for motor park touts which has become a menace in the state’s transportation ecosystem.
