This was also confirmed by Sanwo-Olu who tweeted the choice and presentation:

Concise News had back in October reported Sanwo-Olu’s choice of Hamzat as running mate for the 2019 governorship election in Lagos State.

Hamzat, a former Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure in the state, was a major contender in the race for the APC governorship ticket before stepping down for Sanwo-Olu who went ahead to defeat the incumbent governor, Akinwunmi Ambode in the primary election.
