Bet many would have expected the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu to have picked a woman as his running mate instead he opted for a man, Dr. Obafemi Hamzat.
However, Sanwo-Olu has now come out to clear the air that he does not hate women…
“These are very unfair sentiments you’re bringing up. I am someone that is very passionate about women.”
“My wife is a very interesting person. I have worked with a whole lot of incredible ladies in the world. What we have now is two strong energies and Lagos deserves this. At the risk of sounding immodest, journalists used to complain that Lagos governors were strong and the deputies are weak.”
“So, in this case, we are bringing two governors in one. There are several things our ladies will get from Secretary to the State Government, to Chief of Staff. In my economic team, it is being put in our document that women will get 30 per cent.”
