Hon. Peter Onwusanya (Uncle P), whom, he said, is his mentor for their sterling leadership qualities, maintaining that PDP is working.
He listed his achievements as a Councillor to include empowerment of over 10 persons in the ward with tricycles (keke), eight women with sewing machines and grinding machines to boost their businesses and enhance their economic status.
