“In 2015, I was lobbying to become Hamzat’s Chief of Staff" - Sanwo-Olu

Lagos APC governorship candidate, Jide Sanwo-olu, reveals that he once lobbied to become the
Chief of Staff of his current running mate, Obafemi Hamzat.

Lagos APC governorship candidate, Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu, confessed that he once lobbied to emerge Chief of Staff to Dr. Kadri Obafemi Hamzat, a former Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure in Lagos State.
Hamzat, Sanwo-Olu's running mate, nursed governorship ambitions of his own in 2015.

On October 2, 2018, Sanwo-Olu defeated incumbent Governor Akinwunmi Ambode to emerge the APC governorship candidate for Lagos, ahead of the 2019 general elections.

On Monday, November 5, 2018, the APC formally announced Hamzat as Sanwo-Olu’s running mate.

'God's plan'
During an interactive session with the online media in Lagos on Tuesday, November 6, Sanwo-Olu disclosed that it could all have panned out differently, however, and marveled at how the tables have turned.

“In 2015, I was lobbying to become Hamzat’s Chief of Staff when he ran for the Lagos governorship primary. We have been close friends now for 12 years or so and I totally trust him. Whatever God says will be, will be. We will work together to deliver a Lagos that works”, Sanwo-Olu promised.

Hamzat contested the APC governorship ticket with Ambode (who went on to win at the general election) and Olasupo Shasore.

While thanking God for a change in his fortunes, Sanwo-olu described Hamzat as a fair minded, straightforward gentleman with whom he enjoys plenty of chemistry and who won’t be afraid to level up with him and tell him the truth should the APC win the Lagos governorship election.

Mending fences
Sanwo-Olu, 53, has since mended fences with Ambode after what turned out a bitter primary contest in which names were called and tempers flared for effect.

Ambode has also promised to vigorously solicit votes for Sanwo-Olu when the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) opens the campaign window for the upcoming elections.
