Actress Iyabo Ojo has cautioned fans who are questioning her choice for the next Lagos State governor.
Following Iyabo Ojo’s support for Gbadebo Rhodes Vivour as the next Lagos State Governor, a lot of people have reacted to this.
A mother of one received a warning from a netizen to avoid allowing her emotions to sway her choice of a political leader, given the sensitive nature of the position.
The netizen further highlighted the negative consequences that can arise from making emotional decisions while voting, specifically referencing how Nigerians who voted for President Buhari are now experiencing the repercussions of their decision.
Subsequently, the actress advised the netizen to refrain from being driven by emotions and urged her to make her own choice for a candidate, while she herself also selected her own preferred candidate.

Ojo finally declares her choice in Lagos State
Iyabo Ojo took to her Instagram page to support the Labour Party’s gubernatorial candidate, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour (GRV).
Iyabo Ojo, who claimed her political choice is her right, supported the Labour Party’s GRV because he is a son of the soil, a real Lagosian.
She wrote, “Son of the soil….. omo eko gangan ….. remain blessed & highly favoured @grvlagos 🙏🙏.
“Please vote & support your own choice in peace.
“Let the best man win, A better Lagos is what we pray for, no fight, no hate.”
After Iyabo Ojo made her declaration, several celebrities, including Ngozi Nwosu, Peter Okoye, and Chioma, showed their support for her chosen candidate.
Amidst these, some fans express displeasure with Iyabo Ojo’s choice, claiming her candidate was chosen based on emotions.
What are his antecedents though? This is a choice based on emotions. Obi is better than the president, but that doesn’t make all LP members the best. Experience counts; Lagos is too big for anyone to start working with.
