Dr Obafemi Hamzat, the Deputy Governorship candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State, scored the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) high in Epe, for the peaceful conduct of the governorship and state house of assembly elections on Saturday.
Hamzat spoke with newsmen shortly after casting his vote at about 10.30 a.m, at his Ward 4, Polling Unit 002, Oke-Balogun, in Epe.
He said democracy was worth celebrating, urging the people to come out en masse and vote for candidates of their choice.
The candidate, who expressed happiness at the orderliness in Epe, said he hoped peace would be experienced throughout the state.
Hamzat saluted all progressives and patriots who paid the supreme price to ensure that Nigeria had a sustainable democracy.
He said that the sacrifices of people like the late Pa Alfred Rewane and Dr Beko Ransome Kuti should not be allowed to be in vain.
The candidate urged Lagosians to vote for progress and development, adding that with what he had seen so far, he had no doubt that his party would be victorious.
“Nigerians have been enjoying good governance since the inception of this present administration.
“We assure Nigerians that the good governance will continue and all will enjoy the dividends of democracy,”the deputy-governor hopeful said.
