According to him, ‘’Vote for APC, vote for our party. We are not going anywhere. The presidency is coming here. We will show Nigerians how we have done it in Lagos. We will show Nigerians what has worked for us in Lagos that we want to borrow the Federal Government.’’
The governor said the event was a clarion call to residents of the state that they have a listening government, adding that the administration is committed to fulfilling its promises.
He noted that the government is committed to changing the face of Lagos to a bigger and better state, as well as touching lives in a deliberate and consistent manner.

Sanwo-Olu said the facility is a significant event to identify with the good programmes to be delivered to residents of the state.
The Peace Park which is an initiative of the governor, which is strategically located at the intersection between Ikorodu Road and the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, the governor said, was to further promote peaceful coexistence among Lagosians, especially as the 2023 general elections approach.
