From former commissioner in Lagos State, Obafemi Hamzat, has emerged as running mate of All Progressive Congress’ gubernatorial candidate in the state, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, for the 2015 general elections.

Hamzat’s candidacy was unveiled yesterday at a press briefing addressed by the party’s state chairman, Tunde Balogun in Lagos.

According to the chairman, the choice of Hamzat, a former Commissioner for Science and Technology as well as Works and Infrastructure in the state, “is a fantastic team that will bring development to Lagos and build a Lagos that everybody will be proud of if voted for during the 2019 governorship elections.”

In his remarks, Sanwo-Olu described Hamzat as a man of deep intellectual knowledge, saying “He is a man of high level of integrity. He is a man that I have worked closely with in different service. He is competent and I know he is somebody that I know very well and will help me and together, we will take Lagos to the level that we are promising; a level that will enhance all of us. He is a technocrat and politician who have also worked in the private and public sector. He is a gentleman that I personally respect a lot and dare say that Lagos will be better and enrich with the caliber of Dr. Hamzat being my running mate”.

Hamzat, while responding, said:“Mr. Sanwo-Olu and myself, we understand what it takes to cook what Lagosians will eat. So, we will display that very soon. The campaign will start and we will show Lagosians that we are a team with APC that can take Lagos to the next level. So, I am very happy and on behalf of myself and my family, I want to thank Mr. Sanwo-Olu and the party leaders for their decision to appoint me as the running mate.”
