Abdul-Azeez Adediran aka Jandor, the Peoples Democratic Party governorship candidate in Lagos State, said if elected as governor in 2023, he would check the excesses of transport unions, motor park touts and end godfatherism in the state.

Adediran stated this while speaking on Sunday evening at the formal presentation of Umo Eno, the PDP governorship candidate in Akwa Ibom State, to its people residing in Lagos State. The event was held at the Nigerian Air Force Base, Kofo Abayomi Street, Victoria Island, Lagos.

Adediran said that his administration would provide opportunity for peaceful co-existence between indigenes and non-indigenes in the state.

He added that efforts would be made to ensure that all residents of the state continue to live in peace and harmony under his government.

Adediran, the Lead Visioner of Lagos-4-Lagos Movement, added that he would be the 16th Governor of Lagos State and the first independent Governor of the state.
