“I believe strongly that in doing this we would continue to enhance the tenets of democracy and as you can see, we believe that with this, we are promoting the culture of one man one vote and then also improve on the State’s well-being and the good governance that we have always enjoyed in Lagos State.
“I’m happy that I have done this and I will do it again,” the Governor said.
He also called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to address delays in the arrival of election materials and staff in some centres in the State.
“Firstly, I just want to thank all Lagosians that today, we have all decided that we are going to promote the real tenets of democracy by actually performing our civic obligation and coming out to vote. I have just finished voting with my wife and in this particular polling booth, everything has been very peaceful.
“I also understand across the State voting is ongoing and somehow there have been reports of delays in some of these polling centres and we implore INEC to ensure that the voting materials and all the electoral staff actually come out quickly so that everybody can have the opportunity to perform their civic obligations,” he said.
