He revealed this during the Lagos State Government Youth Pro-Democracy Webinar in Commemoration of the 27th Anniversary of June 12 and Democracy Day 2020.
According to him, he would ensure governance is for the greatest good and for the greatest number of people in his state.
He added that it is key for young Nigerians to understand the conversations that led to the struggle around June 12, so we can all work towards ensuring democracy is continuous in the country.
His words, ”As your governor, I assure you that the tenets of democracy will continue to live. We will continue to make democracy our guiding principles, that it is the greatest good for the greatest number.
”We will ensure that the sacred ballot that our citizens has given to us will be held to the highest level of responsibility and we will hold it with the highest level of commitment to ensure that the commitment that was given to us by the people is not thrown away.”
”As your governor sitting here today, that is what I have signed to, those are my commitments to all of you and I keep saying there are opportunities to work it and nothing will stop us until we achieve a democracy that we look forward to,”
”It is important that they appreciate what June 12 was all about, what led to the struggle – Pre and Post June 12 – and being able to tie it to the democracy we see today.”
”We have seen elections that has now happened back-to-back in the country, we are now in 21 years of untruncated, unaborted democratic process, so we need to give credit to the people that ensured that democracy came to stay in the country.”
”We believe that democracy in Nigeria has come to stay, it is important that the younger generation understand the conversations that led to the struggle around June 12.”
