I, therefore, want to thank the people of Lagos state for believing in me and supporting my decision to run for office.
I saw every message of support online and offline, heard of all the places where people supported me
and challenged those who tried to discredit me. Also I remember every warm welcome during our campaign tour and the faith you all showed in me.
The elections might not have panned out in the way we hoped, but it was an honourable run for us.
We fought a good fight indeed as a matter of fact.
“I also want to encourage all who mean well for the Nation and the state of Lagos not to give up. I understand that some of us are beginning to develop some sort of apathy towards the system, however, if we do not speak, we would never be heard. I’m glad that we could at least speak up.

Eko oni baje!”
