” We should give him that opportunity to replicate what he has done in Lagos State across the nation and we believed that all the locust years will be recovered within a short time if given the mandate to be the president of this country.
” Having been convinced that education is key to a Pandora box. In building people, institution and society, ABAT Movement is of the strong belief that these, he has been able to give during the period he held sway as the governor of Lagos State.
” His successors too have not done badly. They have been able to consolidate on his achievement and they can always do better.
