The Governorship candidate of the Alliance for Democracy (AD) in Lagos State, Chief Owolabi Salis, has urged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to ensure credible elections in the 2019 general elections.
Salis, who made the appeal on Monday when he met with the Heads of Muslim community in Ikeja area of the state, urged INEC to avoid rigging and discourage vote buying and other malpractices.
He said that he remained the candidate of the people in the Lagos State governorship race and would ensure that the grassroots support from the people translated to his victory in the poll.
Salis said that the state needed an urgent transformation, affirming that only a visionary leader could achieve that for the state.
He assured that he would give priority attention to issues of housing, health, education and ensure that the youths were empowered.
According to him, there is systemic slavery in the country whereby a segment of the society is neglected causing derailment of people’s destinies.
“A situation where graduates are driving tricycles is counter-productive.
“One thing my government will do is to support the justice system so that the jurists can make decisions in the interest of the state. This is vital and I know what to do and how to do it.
“As a practicing lawyer, I can tell you there is so much to be done by lawyers in Nigeria. Ours is a huge population, so, you can use law to expand the economy and empower the masses,” he said.
He also urged the electorate to believe and trust in his aspiration to make the state better.
