”I don’t run away from the battle. I’m very particular and passionate about democracy. During MKO we tried but we could not get it. When they came to meet us we seek your support and Buhari became the President.

“Inform everyone that I want to contest. I will make Nigeria be more developed than Lagos.
“It is a pity that ordinary brake pad Nigeria cannot produce. I will turn Nigeria around for good.

“Division is one of the problems in Nigeria too but there is no division in Lagos because any tribe or religion is welcome as they can contest and win elections and that is why Lagos is thriving.
