Winner of the Oshodi/Isolo Federal Constituency 1 election, Bashiru Dawodu, has presented his Certificate of Return to the National Union of Road Transport Workers, Musiliu Akinsanya, aka MC Oluomo.
The Certificate of Return was issued by the Independent National Electoral Commission to candidates elected on the strength of general elections in the country.
Dawodu, who is a member of the All Progressives Congress, visited Oluomo’s home and thanked the NURTW leader for the role he played in his victory.
In his response, Oluomo said he would support Dawodu to become a senator in 2023 by God’s grace.
He said, “May be after this, we will be going to the Senate by God’s grace.”
The election in Oshodi/Isolo Local Government Area, where Okota is located, was one of the areas that was hit by violence in Lagos State.
Videos which went viral on the Internet showed thugs destroying ballot boxes and tearing ballot papers on election day.
In another video, people were seen running away from polling units while gunshots could be heard in the background.
Oluomo was, in January, stabbed by persons suspected to be rival members of the NURTW who invaded the Skypower Ground, Ikeja, venue of an APC rally, with guns, daggers and other dangerous weapons.
