He made this known during a lecture he delivered at the 3rd Alumni Lecture of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) Faculty of Engineering Alumni Association which was held at the University campus, Thursday December 12.

He said;

“I saw myself purely as a professional – a technocrat- in politics and public service.

“The opportunity to run as governor was a bigger responsibility than anything I had ever done, and, and unlike everything before, not a role to which I could be simply appointed. I can say that it was at that point that I became a politician”.
