A statement by Peter Nnamonu, the spokesman of the project management team on Sunday, explained that the politician had reached agreement with Irradeate and Lighting Tech Company Light & Lyrics to execute the strategy which would run till the end of February.
He added, “We have come this far because of the involvement of Lagosians in the campaign, and we cannot but continue to explore other innovative options to make it more inclusive.
“Democracy is not just about competition among political parties and candidates; it is more about the people and public participation.
