Thaddeus Attah, The Recharge Card Seller Who Defeated "Banky W & Babajide Obanikoro At The Polls.

Imagine when they say miracles do happen and it happens to you or anyone you know, especially when Aisha Yusuf says that she want a country where the son of a nobody will become somebody and that was what happened to Thaddeus Attah, the young who has just become the House of Representatives elect of the Labour Party in Eti-Osa federal constituency.

Until the 25th of February 2023, little or nothing was known or heard about Thaddeus Attah or his political sagacity, but he succeeded in defeating a sitting member of the House of Representatives and son of a former Senator, Babajide Obanikoro, whose father is Senator Musliu Obanikoro and frontline musician and Nollywood actor, Bankole Wellington, known as BankyW.

"Precious Eze's Blog" went to town to dig out a few things about Thaddeus Attah and we spoke with some one who claim to know him very well and live almost in the same area with him. Our finding has it that the now House of Representatives member-elect had had it very rough in life and winning this election still in shock as we write this.

According to the respondent who asked to remain anonimous, and who responded to our previous story what this platform referred to Mr. Thaddeus Attah as an Unknown Labour Party candidate, his response was, ......."Unknown indeed my brother. He was my neighbour at some point in time in Osapa London where he was selling recharge cards at the junction leading to our street and from that humble beginning, he started doing Agency for buying and selling of properties. In life, do not write anyone off".

This is how it should be, he continued, and not for those who has taken it as if it's their birthright and by hook or crook which wouldn't matter to them.

So you see how God just picked Thaddeus Attah and elevated him to not only status, but also to a member of the Federal Hose of Representatives.

Attah won the election with 24,075 votes, beating his closest rival, Olubankole Wellington (Banky W) of the Peoples Democratic Party  (PDP), who had 18,666 votes, and the incumbent, Babjide Obanikoro of the APC, who had 16, 901 votes.

Others who contested against him were Oladehin Olufemi of the African Democratic Congress, with 1,422 votes, Azeez Kabirat of New Nigeria Peoples Party, with 414 votes, and Olasunkanmi Ololade of the Social Democratic Party with 207 votes.
