Salis said: “For Lagos to be a true megacity there must be freedom and security. A megacity never sleeps. But insecurity, encouraged by selfish politicians that put guns in the hands of youths, has taken over the state.

“This is made worse by the fact that government is not for the commoners. Therefore, quality health, education and other basic amenities is beyond the everyday Lagosian. But our government will have everyone on board.”

“So this is the time for everyone to speak up by voting for me, whose driving force is the welfare of all, because I am not in the race to make wealth for myself. I am living well, so this is about taking the commonwealth to the people.”
