Also, when and why did you fall apart with Tinubu?
I think it is normal in politics for individual perceptions and interests to diverge. Bola Tinubu is not my enemy, but we are also not as close as we used to be. But I think that is the nature of politics. I think some politicians often get to a point where they want only subservient people around them. I don’t believe in that type of politics. I view politics as a sacrifice and service and I view it as the most honourable of vocations. I believe politics should actually be about truth, integrity and service.
APC seems to have outspent you in terms of campaign funding as the party’s candidate is visible in all parts of the state through adverts, posters and billboards. Are you having a funding challenge and is this not a threat to your aspiration?
No one expects us to match APC in terms of spending! They have ruled over Lagos for 16 years and some people have described this election as somebody’s attempt to have a fifth term! They have access to all the resources of Lagos State! Our campaign is resonating in the hearts and minds, the homes and communities across the state and, in spite of the noise and posters, we believe our campaign is gaining traction where it matters and I am convinced that we will prevail.
