The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has set a seven days ultimatum to the embattled Kogi state Deputy Governor elect, James Faleke to make up his mind or he will be ousted out completely.
Faleke is also a member of the Lagos state’s house of assembly was accused of political immorality by the PDP, maintaining that he cannot represent the people of Lagos and Kogi states at the same time.
According to the Lagos PDP chairman, Capt. Tunji Shelle(rtd.) “Faleke should not continue to represent the Ikeja constituency because he presently has his voting unit relocated to Kogi State. This is open assault to decent democracy and ridicules the nation before the international community.”
Adding that “If the demand is not met within the period of this ultimatum, we shall use all means permitted and effective to reclaim the seat for Lagos State.”
Faleke on the other hand has dismissed the comments saying“Shelle must have read the constitution upside down by reading immorality to what I have done. He should consult experts to have a better understanding of the statute book.
“Why should he give me a seven-day ultimatum? If he is so serious about what he is saying, he should go to court tomorrow. This is a constitutional democracy. The law is there to be tested.”
James Faleke is also the House of Representatives member representing Ikeja federal constituency of Lagos sate.
