The Labour Party candidate for the just concluded gubernatorial elections in Lagos State, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, has alleged that the immediate past chairman of the party in the state, Kayode Salako, is suffering from bipolar disorder.
Kayode, who resigned his position in January 2023 to focus on running for Oshodi Isolo Constituency 1 in the House of Representatives, had been accused of working with the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Recall that Kayode’s wife, Foluke Daramola, tackled Rhodes-Vivour last week, accusing him of sidelining her husband after handing him a party ticket.
Kayode and Rhodes-Vivour had been in verbal war since the governorship election was concluded.
In a tweet on Tuesday, Rhodes-Vivour said he would not be trading words with Kayode, alleging that he is only talking under the influence of his mental health condition.
He wrote, “I am very empathetic when it comes to mental health conditions, and I do take them very seriously. As a result, I will not be responding to Kayode Salako because I know for a fact that he is bipolar.
“Sadly, this condition is used by others to manipulate him for political gain. "I wish him well and hope he gets the medical attention he needs."
