According to Fani-Kayode: “I make no apology for saying the following. Lagos is NOT no-man’s land. It belongs to the Yoruba.

“Other than winning the Presidency, the most important thing for the Yoruba to do is to ensure that Jide Sanwo-Olu is re-elected as Gov. of Lagos.Outside of that we are finished as a race.
