According to him, the AD has the objective to rescue Lagos for the benefit of those at the grassroots and will do all that is necessary within the bounds of the law in advancing the well being of the people grassroots and the less privileged.
He said: “In today’s Lagos, there are so many imposed stooges in government and the stooges must not only sing the praises of their benefactor, but must also make returns by sharing the commonwealth allocation.
“The danger of this is evident in the grassroots. Check the neighborhoods, they are so decayed because the commonwealth is not being used for the people.
“Believe me, we have enough money in Lagos State to improve on development for the people but these are in the hands of private individuals.”
Salis restated that he was in the race in order to rescue the state by advancing the interest of the people.
He said: “If we win, our focus will be moving forward to advance the interests of the people and never to be vindictive.
“Participation in government for the benefit of the people will involve the grassroots and credible people from other platforms.
“The destiny of the people will be determined by them and never to be derailed by anyone.”
