Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, governorship candidate of the Labour Party in Lagos State has alleged that Kayode Salako, the former chairman of the party in the state, is suffering from Bipolar disorder and is being manipulated for political gains.
Kayode, who resigned his position in January 2023 to focus on running for the 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 had last week, tackled Rhodes-Vivour, 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 out of the influence of his mental health condition.
He wrote, “I am very empathetic when it comes to mental health conditions and I do take it very seriously. As a result, I will not be responding to Kayode Salako because I know for a fact that he is Bi-Polar.
“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”.
