Jimi Agbaje Picks First Bank Director As Running Mate

Jimi Agbaje, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in Lagos State, has picked Haleemat Busari, a serving director in First Bank in Sierra Leone, as his running mate.

This was disclosed in a statement on Thursday by the Director of Media and Publicity of the Jimi Agbaje Campaign Organisation, Felix Oboagwina.

Agbaje’s running mate, who is a law graduate from the University of Lagos, is a Director on the board of several blue-chip companies. She was a director in Zain Nigeria Ltd (now Airtel Nigeria, a leading telecommunications company).

The statement said the Lagos PDP candidate picked Busari following comprehensive consultations with leaders and stakeholders within and outside the party.

His words: “Mrs Oluwayemisi Haleemat Busari came highly recommended and widely endorsed.

“Stakeholders all agree that without any iota of a doubt, the Jimi-Haleemat combination is a winning ticket on every count,” the statement said.

Agbaje’s running mate, who is married to Teslim Busari (SAN), was born in 1964, to the family of the late Ahmed Giwa, a businessman and Vice President of Jamatul Islamiyya of Nigeria from Epe, and the late Mrs Mujibat Giwa (nee Shonibare), a princess of the Kosoko royal family from Isale Eko.

Oboagwina said Mrs Busari will be bringing to the joint ticket her versatility and connections as a professional in corporate governance, as a Muslim activist and as a bonafide daughter of native Lagos.
