The PDP Councillor-elect, Mr Adeshola Thomas and the YPP Councillor-elect, Omotunde Abdul-Kareem, were on Tuesday presented the Certificates of Return at the LASIEC headquarters in Sabo, Yaba.

Speaking with NAN, the PDP Councillor-elect described his victory as the work of God and resilience of the people.


Thomas said: “I feel great. First, I will thank my God because when the struggle started, He stood by us and at the end we have the victory.

“During the election, out of the 18 polling units in my ward, my challengers allegedly took two ballot boxes away. In the remaining 16, I won in 15 and lost with only five votes in the last polling unit.

“So, even this Certificate of Return, I am giving it to them. I promise them in this tenure they will be in charge. I have to represent them well. All glory to God and my people.”

On the possibility of his defection to the ruling party, Thomas said that he would be faithful to the party on which he got the mandate.
