Youths mobilise constituents to recall Ondo federal lawmaker

Peter Dada, Akure

Youths in Idanre/Ifedore Federal Constituency of Ondo State have begun to mobilise the people of the constituency to start the process of recalling the lawmaker representing the constituency at the House of Representatives, Mr. Bolarinwa Bamidele.

The youths, under the auspices of the Idanre/Ifedore Youth Coalition, alleged that the lawmaker had not made any positive impact in the federal constituency, adding that he had allegedly abandoned the constituency for a long time.

Addressing journalists in Akure on Thursday, the coordinator of the group, Mr. Adeyemi Alabi, alleged that Bamidele had absconded from the federal constituency.

The group also alleged that the lawmakers had not sponsored a single bill on the floor of the lower chamber of the National Assembly since he had been elected to represent the people.

Alabi further alleged that the lawmaker had refused to empower the people of the constituency like the other members of the House of Representatives in the state had done.

Alabi said, “We are, indeed, unfortunate in Idanre/Ifedore Federal Constituency; Bamidele has absconded from this area. His constituency office is non-functional. We can’t access our representative; he has not been home for a long time now.”

However, one of the aides of the federal lawmaker, Mr. Odeyemi Richard, who spoke on his behalf, said the allegations were not true. He explained that the federal legislator had done well for the people of the constituency.

He said, “We in Idanre/Ifedore Federal Constituency are not complaining, no lawmaker in Ondo has achieved what my boss had achieved in our federal constituency in the last two years. We have nine federal lawmakers at the lower chamber and none of them has achieved what my boss had achieved in the last two years.”
