Lagos State Commissioner for Works, and a governorship aspirant of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Obafemi Hamzat, has promised to work and support the winner of the party’s governorship primary, Akinwumi Ambode.
Mr. Hamzat came second in the election which held Thursday.
He scored 1,201 while Mr. Ambode, the eventual winner, scored 3,735 votes.
“I congratulate Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode for his victory in the Lagos Gubernatorial Primary Election. We shall support you for the upcoming final victory by February 28th 2015,” Mr. Hamzat wrote on his Facebook page Friday morning.
He added that the loss of the party’s governorship ticket does not end his life.
“One disappointment is not the end. Your life doesn’t stop because of a single setback. It will all work together for your good. The bigger the disappointment, the bigger the blessing. There is beauty for your ashes—joy for your mourning,” he wrote.
The one-time commissioner for science and technology ended his note saying: “You’ve got to let go of what didn’t work out. You can’t do anything about the past but you can do something about right now”.
