The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that INEC had published details of 41 candidates of various political parties in the state for the 2019 governorship election.

NAN reports that the publication indicated that 41 political parties will contest the governorship election while 47 would participate in the state Lagos State House of Assembly election.

NAN also reports that only APC, PDP, SDP, ADC, AD and MPN fielded candidates for all the 40 seats in the state parliament.

“I am not intimidated by the principal contestants of the other parties. I am not just the candidate of AD but also the candidate of the people.

“AD is a party of the people and the people’s party,” Salis said.

He, however, called on INEC to ensure credible elections, avoid rigging and discourage vote buying and other malpractices.

On imposition, Salis said that Lagos needed a visionary leader to steer its affairs and not a product of imposition.

“Lagosians are tired of imposition because their commonwealth is with certain individuals,” he said.

The governorship candidate also said that AD did not endorse the APC Candidate, Jide Sanwo-olu, saying that the AD was not part of the “kangaroo endorsement”.

Also, the Chairman of AD in Lagos, Mr Ajayi Kolawole, said the party was fully on ground and engaging with the grassroots.

“We are here to correct the impression that we are not known for, we are not a new party, we have been on ground,” Kolawole said.
