PDP asks Faleke to quit N/Assembly

21 December 2015, 15:46

Lagos -  The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State has urged the lawmaker representing Ikeja federal constituency of Lagos State, James Faleke, who is also the deputy governor-elect in Kogi State to make up his mind on which state he actually represents, reports Punch.

The party in a statement by its chairman, Tunji Shelle said Faleke, who has been battling for an executive position in Kogi State, had short-changed the people of Ikeja who voted for him on March 28, 2015.

Shelle described the present status of Faleke in the House as that of a usurper who should no longer be fit and proper to be called an honourable member.

He said his party is giving a 7-day ultimatum from Monday, December 21, to Faleke to declare his present place of voter’s registration and for Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to clear the air on the appropriateness of Faleke inter-changing polling units within a period of less than six months.

Shelle noted that if the demand is not met within the period of this ultimatum, the PDP would use all means permitted and effective to reclaim the seat for Lagos State.
