Dr Obafemi Hamzat, popularly known as Femi Hamzat or Dr. Kadri Hamzat is currently in the running to become the deputy Governor of Lagos State of Nigeria. He previously sought to be Governor twice under the All Progressives Congress (APC) party but failed to win the party ticket. Once in 2014 and again in 2018. He lost to Akinwunmi Ambode in 2014 and lost to Babajide Sanwo-Olu in 2018. Sanwo-olu later selected Obafemi Hamzat to be his running mate. The Governorship elections will conclude in March 2019.
On the first of January 2019, a media representative to former president of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan, released statements to the media referring to Femi Hamzat as a liar. Part of the statement read: ” This character [Femi Hamzat] is an obscure individual who in 2015 had neither a recognisable name nor political clout. The point has to be clearly made that former President Jonathan has never met this man who was obviously not relevant in the national politics of 2015, let alone seek to offer him bribe. “If the former President did not offer anyone bribe, having clearly acquitted himself as a man who does not believe in desperate politics, how on earth could he have sought to compromise an individual he didn’t even know and who obviously had no means of helping him politically?”
Femi Hamzat previously released information stating that he rejected a $5 million bribe from Goodluck Jonathan when Goodluck Jonathan was president of Nigeria.
