The Lagos Governorship Candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Mr. Jimi Agbaje, has chosen a female lawyer, Mrs. Haleemat Oluwayemisi Busari, as his running mate for the 2019 gubernatorial race.
Not much is known about Busari but being a woman she would complement Pharmacist Agbaje in the governorship race.
But the Director of Media and Publicity of the Jimi Agbaje Campaign Organisation (JACO), Felix Oboagwina, said in a statement that the PDP candidate picked Mrs. Busari following comprehensive consultations with leaders and stakeholders within and outside the party.
“Mrs. Oluwayemisi Haleemat Busari came highly recommended and widely endorsed,” the statement said.
“Stakeholders all agree that without any iota of doubt, the Jimi-Haleemat combination is a winning ticket on every count.”
According to Oboagwina, Mrs. Busari will be bringing to the joint ticket her versatility and connections as a professional in corporate governance, as a Muslim activist and as a bonafide daughter of native Lagos.
“Oluwayemisi’s life and beliefs are guided by her strong Islamic faith, which has been her foundation all her life,” the statement said.
