‘I am back in APC a party I helped build since 1999. I am a part and parcel of the progressive party and I am back to support a very great friend of mine, Asiwaju Tinubu to achieve his presidential ambition. It is the turn of the South-
West and Asiwaju is the right person to make it happen’, he said.
‘let us ensure we deliver a minimum of 200 votes at all polling units in Ikorodu. If we can do this, it will be a walk-over for us to deliver at least four million votes for Tinubu in the forthcoming elections’, he stated.

I was part of the designing and planning of the robust new Lagos as seen in the Lekki Deep Sea Port and Dangote Refinery. He appointed me to develop the blueprint for LASEMA. He is a visionary leader’, he added.
