“With the current Okada ban, the riders that would be made jobless should be engaged in one empowerment or the other.”

“Also on the Lekki toll gate exploitation, I will address that if I emerge. We know that Lagosians living on that axis are going through hard times as they have to pay each time they move in and out. I will check that.

“I will make sure Lagos is a mega city in all respect if my party wins the election in Lagos,” he maintained.
