Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, the gubernatorial candidate, has promised to put an end to the dominance of thugs, also known as agbero when he becomes governor of Lagos State.
The Labour Party (LP) candidate also promised he will deliver four rail lines in the state and also invest heavily in water transportation.
The architect also promised he will fix the longstanding housing problems Lagosians have endured for many years.
Rhodes-Vivour said: “And then, we are going to fix the agbero situation across the state.” This has become a real issue; we need Lagos to become a 24-hour city, and security is essential to making that happen.
“We are going to work with them as stakeholders because we need to look at this thing holistically and equip them with alternative means of living.”
“And because we are not a government that needs people to suppress and intimidate people not to vote, we are going to tell them that that job description is no longer available.” So, we are going to put them in skills and programs that allow that to happen.”
