Debt Payment: Rhode-Vivour’s Wife Apologises After Social Media Backlash
Ify Aniebo, wife of Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, Labour Party governorship candidate for Lagos State in the 2023 election, has apologised after accusation of not paying the salary of an ex-employee.
After her spouse helped settle the debt, she apologised on her X account on Thursday.
Ify expressed remorse while admitting that she could have handled the situation differently before it escalated.
She described it as a ‘teachable moment’ while vowing to do better going forward.
She wrote: “I have taken time out to reflect and now it’s clear to me I should have handled events differently. It didn’t have to come this far and I sincerely apologise.
“This is a teachable moment for me and I strongly appreciate the constructive criticisms. I will handle things better going forward.
“That said, #GRVlagos oko mi! I know I don’t do this enough but I’m incredibly lucky to have you. Thank you for being kind, patient, and loving. My knight in shining armour.
“Forget all this ‘shalaye’ on the timeline, you’re eating well this week – and I’d also be on the menu.”
On Tuesday, Rhodes-Vivour stepped in and paid off his wife’s debt when Chike Jones, a writer and social media manager for Ify Rhodes-owned Afroscientric.com, claimed on X that he had been owed payment for more than eight months.
