He claimed that the Sanwo-Olu-led state government has been victimizing him since his political ambition became public knowledge.

Adeniran said the reason he wants to become governor is to make Lagos work for everyone, alleging that the state is currently working for a few people.

He boasted that he won't solicit the support of the party leadership to realise his political ambition in the next general elections.

He said:

“The fact that we are not bowing down at anyone’s feet is the sin we have committed but by the grace of God, I will be the next governor of Lagos in 2023.
"I won’t go to party leaders to beg them to give me their supporters because I do not want to repeat the mistakes of former Governor Akinwunmi Ambode."
