In his declaration statement, the man of God said this position is a very vital one to the people of Freetown, it is the engine to drive the policies of the central government in improving the lives and welfare of the people.
He noted that if the Freetown City Council is to exhibit its fullest potential there is a need to inject fresh ideas from people like him, who has dedicated his life working for God and other people.
