For 23 years, Bola Tinubu has ruled Lagos State directly and indirectly as the undisputed godfather. However, the new kid on the block, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour (GRV), appears to be on the verge of upending Tinubu’s dynasty in Nigeria’s commercial capital. He tells The Africa Report how he plans to achieve the seemingly impossible.

When on 29 May 1999 Bola Tinubu was being inaugurated as the Governor of Lagos State at the Tafawa Balewa Square, Ikoyi; Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour was a 16-year-old high school student of Ecole Artive Berlin, Paris.
