Failed Dream: Obafemi Hamzat Settles For Less

Published

on

Obafemi Hamzat is described by those who really know him as a brilliant chap.
This probably explains why very few people were surprised when he became Commissioner for the Ministry of Works and Infrastructure in Lagos State.
It also to a large extent explained why a lot of his fans religiously believed his tall dream of becoming the next governor of Lagos State in the last election.
Having been defeated by the incumbent Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode in his bid to govern Lagos State, Hamzat has settled for a less vibrant role.
The man who has always been loyal to Babatunde Fashola when he was the Governor of Lagos State is said to be functioning as one of his think tank now that Fashola is the Minister of Power, Works and Housing.
Talk about settling for the next best thing in the absence of the desired.

    Honestly, you people write shit sometimes. What is the point of this? What would Ambode had done if he did not win? Move on with his life like Femi, commit suicide or cry injustice and set thugs loose on the streets? Just zip it if you can’t find something interesting to write about.
