He further assured them that he does not discriminate neither does he prejudice against anybody on the basis of religion as that would be a recipe for failure.

According to him, “I have never lent myself to baseless prejudice and discrimination. To do so would be a recipe for failure in the governance of a diverse society and I am not a man that is familiar with failing.”

“I never drove someone from Lagos or made them feel unwelcome.” Lagos has welcomed newcomers during my administration and still does now.

“Lagos has had two Christian governors and one Muslim governor after me. I might not be faultless. What is a human being? However, I do not have hidden biases and prejudices since I am not a small-minded individual.

The former governor continued by discussing his goals for the nation should he win the presidency in 2023. He pledged to rebalance the economy to provide better jobs, fight hunger, and abolish fuel subsidies because they have become ineffective and only benefit the elites.
