Emil, the familiar nickname of Ridwan Kamil, said that conducivity was a stronghold of unity which became the foundation of the nation. While the current challenges are hoax and information warfare. The misleading dissemination of information, according to him, can affect labor to the regional economy.
"The taste of conducivity is dead! Prices are expensive! People must be tough in facing information warfare," Emil said.

"The choice may be different. We all have here a different choice, it is legal. But do not differ in the intention to build West Java," said the Commander.
