“Everything is being done under the control of and supervision and directions of the NWC. ‘All that is good to go on, direct primaries, and everything is being done to ensure that there is no violence, that it is very potent.
“Democracy doesn’t flourish with violence and Nigerians must begin to learn how to differ in opinion and in choice without fighting. At least something people have to acquire over time.
“And for me, I am excited that if we can do it in Lagos, we can do it anywhere.
“Very ordinary people are determined whether a governor should run again or not run again. So, nobody is going to take anybody for granted.

“We can grow to a level that Nigerians will really have a sense of ownership of the democratic process.”
