Agbaje picks First Bank director as running mate
The Lagos state governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Jimi Agbaje, has announced a lawyer, Mrs. Haleemat Busari, as his running mate.
The law graduate from the University of Lagos is a Director on the board of several blue-chip companies.
It would be recallled that Busari had earlier served as a director in Zain Nigeria Ltd (now Airtel Nigeria, a leading telecommunications company) and a serving director in First Bank, Sierra Leone.
A statement on Thursday by the Director of Media and Publicity of the Jimi Agbaje Campaign Organisation, Felix Oboagwina, said 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.
“Stakeholders all agree that without any iota of a doubt, the Jimi-Haleemat combination is a winning ticket on every count,” the statement reads in part.
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.
