ITREALMS ... making leadership SENSE with digital news!

Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the acclaimed national leader of the All Progressive Congress (APC) and former governor of Lagos State, has commended the incumbent deputy governor, Dr Obafemi Kadir Hamzat on his 56th birthday, reports ITREALMS.

In a message available to ITREALMS, Tinubu sends a warm congratulations to Dr. Obafemi Kadir Hamzat as he turns 56, describing him as having good character.

"An accomplished academic, renowned technocrat, administrator and progressive politician, Dr. Hamzat has brought his vast knowledge, immense technical abilities and tremendous experience to bear on the various positions he has held in both Lagos and at the centre in Abuja.

"His contributions in the areas of information technology and infrastructural conception, design and development are particularly remarkable.

"From a background of illustrious career in the private sector, Dr. Hamzat joined the public service upon his appointment in August 2005 as Commissioner for Science and Technology during my second term as governor of Lagos.

"Since then, he has not been found wanting in his contributions and commitment to making Lagos a better place. He has served the state with dedication in several capacities and continues in the tradition of diligence and excellence in the service of our people.

"A prodigious man and team player, as deputy governor of Lagos and second-in-command to Governor Babajide Sanwo-olu from May 2019 till date, Dr. Hamzat has exhibited good character.

"He has provided strong support and partnership to ensure that our APC government achieve the aspiration of a greater and better Lagos. As a leader in a great team, Deputy Governor Hamzat has demonstrated that a deputy can work harmoniously with the governor, and yet carve a niche for himself.

"This excellent team building and partnership is worthy of emulation by governors and their deputies across the country, particularly in states where such relationship has been characterized by constant distrust and acrimony.

"On this occasion of his 56th birthday, I pray that Almighty Allah grant him many more years, good health and continued robust physical and mental energies to continue in the service of our people."
