Elegushi of Ikate Kingdom, Oba Saheed Ademola Elegushi has commiserated with the Deputy Governor-elect of Lagos State, Dr Obafemi Hamzat, over the demise of his father, Oba Muftau Olatunji Hamzat, describing the late Hamzat as a bridge builder, patriotic and selfless political.
In a condolence message from the Elegushi’s Palace, Oba Elegushi noted that the late Oba Hamzat spent the greater part of his life in the service of people, especially in Lagos, where he held various public offices and contributed to the development of the State.
It was in view of his exemplary leadership that his people beckon on him to mount the stool as the King of Afowawa-Sogade, where his reach experience and high contacts was able to bring more development to the town.
The Elegushi said it was no surprise that Lagosians elected Dr Femi Hamzat as the Deputy Governor, alongside Babajide Sanwo-Olu, eulogising that the deputy governor-elect is a chip of the old block, assuring that he is convinced that incoming administration of Sanwo-olu and Hamzat will take Lagos to the next level of development.
He sympathized with the immediate family, friends and political associates of the Late Hamzat, enjoining them to take solace in the exemplary life he lived.
