IN his words, “We complain about a dwindling economy today, but the truth is that restiveness, banditry, terrorism, kidnappings, and general insecurity are some of the major causes. It is not difficult to know that no nation can thrive or succeed when it is violence-ridden.
“Just as citizens must begin to live in peace and neighbourliness, we, as leaders, must also not nap, we must not sleep on ideas to make the country great. We must show perfect examples of love for country and sacrifice to humanity as Islam teaches."
He went on to say that; “In Lagos, we have remained a good example of a working democracy thanks to our hardworking leaders and faithful residents.
“Like I said earlier ahead of the local government council elections, it is very important that all parties shun violence. We must eschew violence; it is not going to do any of us any good and it is not going to do any party any good also".
He pleaded with the politicians to allow the people to choose their leaders and to shun all forms of violence before, during, and after the coming elections.
