In a Twitter plot twist hotter than jollof rice on a Lagos Saturday, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour has finally addressed the saga of Chika Jones, the man who accused Ify Aniebo, Rhodes-Vivour’s wife of withholding payment on a job done. Turns out, it wasn’t just phantom salaries causing Chika’s heartburn – it was an actual plate of eba that went cold amidst the campaign chaos.
In a statement so diplomatic it could win you a visa to Wakanda, Rhodes-Vivour extended an olive branch thicker than Mamaput’s Sunday stew, acknowledging the “episode” and assuring everyone the “situation has been rectified” (read: cheque cleared).
Now, Twitter is having a field day, serving up reactions hotter than Agege pepper:
Ify shouldn't have let it go that far tbvh. You wey dem wan roast before, you still come dey use soy sauce rub body. It's good her husband resolved immediately. But if you're expecting him to chastise her in public to please you, you know what that 'meins'.

Obidients have once again shown that they're not here to cuddle or make excuses for politicians. I didn't know wetin dey "shele" until I saw GRV's intervention tweet last night although I wished Dr. Ify settled the matter with Chika herself, swiftly & professionally.
My guess is…

Tinubu's supporters attacking GRV because of Ify is funny.

I'm actually curious about the thought process of Ify RV. There's so much at stake for them that I wonder why less than a thousand pounds will be something you'd drag over? Tbh I'm genuinely concerned because it goes against everything I thought of her.

Of course, there are still skeptics questioning the sincerity of the olive branch, but even they can’t deny the entertainment value. This “episode” has given Twitter more content than a Nollywood box set, proving that sometimes, the real drama unfolds not in the ballot box, but in the comment box.
So, grab your popcorn (or eba, if you prefer), because the Rhodes-Vivour vs. Chika saga is far from over. And remember, in the Twittersphere, forgiveness comes with likes, not just olive branches.
