Responding, Adediran, who described his Governorship battle as the Lord’s battle, expressed confidence that with the support of the people, the state would celebrate freedom by March 11.

“This battle is beyond physical.By this time next week, all of us will be out of that government suppressing us. The battle before us is about coming out en mass to vote.

“When they (APC) are having godfather, Jandor holds on to God the Father, we will call on Him and believe that He will heed our cry.

“The days of APC in Lagos are numbered. Next week we will put an end to it existence in Lagos.Please, make no mistake.
