He said that the All Progressives Congress (APC) was in desperate to hold onto power Lagos state by all means necessary.

“The people of Ibeju Lekki Constituency I came out to vote with the intention to echo the tiredness of Lagos people with the current dispensation under the APC.

They came to do this honorably; they came with no intention to soil their hands; they came to vote the APC out.

“They would have succeeded in a level playing ground. But, indeed, the good people of Ibeju Lekki for the first time witnessed a blatant broad daylight robbery of their mandate by the enemies of democracy.

 “We came into this race with the honest and honourable intention to address the decay in people’s representation.

“We have meticulously gathered overwhelming evidence of the electoral fraud that occurred in the Ibeju Lekki Constituency I rerun election.

And we have decided to take legal action through the Election Petitions Tribunal. We promise that by God’s grace, the mandate of the people of Ibeju Lekki Constituency 1 of Lagos State shall be reclaimed.”
