Salis, Lagos State governorship candidate of Alliance for Democracy,  AD, added that his administration will focus on things that will bridge the widening gap between the rich and the poor.

In his words: “If a leader is materialistic, the people’s interest cannot be priority. Otherwise, using the state resources to care for the people is the essence of governance. It has nothing to do with politics, but everything to do with social investment.

“As I keep saying, Lagos State has the resources to take care of its population. This is why when I am voted in as governor, every local council development area, LCDA, will have a government-funded skills acquisition centre.”

He noted that the foundation was speaking to the Bank of Industry, BoI, towards a symposium for all 54,000 beneficiaries on how to access the various social investment funds.
