After receiving blessings of many top political leaders as well as those that matter in the scheme of things across Lagos Central Senatorial District, property construction giant and Chairman of DHB Group Limited, Hakeem Alobo-Bakare, today, Friday 10 September, 2021 began his journey towards 2023 senatorial race as he launched his inauguration meeting in Lagos.
The highly brainy man is no stranger in the Lagos political turf, he has been in its trenches for decades. He was a governorship aspirant of All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2015 elections that eventually produced Akinwunmi Ambode.
However, he remained relevant in the scheme of things in the state.
As gathered, his ambition is buoyed by his unprecedented contributions to the growth of his constituency that has wormed him into the hearts of the people. He also has a solid political structure, unmatched clout as well as untainted integrity.
For many years Alobo-Bakare has become a reference point in the nation’s properties construction sector. This is not a mean feat, as those close to him attribute it to his relentless efforts as well as personal strength built through struggle, tenacity, resilience, unbending determination, focus and business acumen.
The 63 years old business guru has channelled his experiences and personally touching the lives of countless others who have had to confront their own challenges.
The businessman towers above many of his contemporaries, particularly because he has been in warm embrace of fame for many decades.
The Business Administration graduate from University of Lagos, Akoka is a fellow of the Chattered Institute of Local Government and Public Administration of Nigeria.
Unlike many politicians with no ‘second address’, the Lagos State born magnate is into business full time while moonlighting as a politician, albeit ready to serve.
After a stint with Central Bank of Nigeria, the brave and courageous man took a plunge into the stormy and highly capital intensive construction industry with his company, DHB Construction Limited. Since then Alobo-Bakare has continued to make indelible marks in the field.
Like a man with midas touch, his construction company has grown into conglomerate with subsidiaries that include, DHB Properties, Limited, Hexagon Logistics, Temjob Limited, Eko Trans Afrik Limited among others.
