The Ondo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party has said it will begin the process of recalling the state’s federal lawmaker, Mr. Mayowa Akinfolarin, who recently defected to the All Progressives Congress.
Akinfolarin, who represents Odigbo/Ile Oluji /Okeigbo Federal Constituency at the Federal House of Representatives, defected to the APC from the PDP in December 2017, with some of his supporters.
Speaking with journalists on Friday after the meeting of the leaders of the party in the Ondo South Senatorial District, held in Akure, the state capital, the National Vice-Chairman of the party, Dr. Eddy Olafeso, declared that the federal lawmaker would be replaced.
Olafeso, who noted that the Ondo South Senatorial District was the stronghold of the PDP in the state, said there was no going back in recalling the defected lawmaker, saying the party would begin the process of recall.
He said, “We are starting a process of recall for Mayowa Akinfolarin who called all the PDP leaders evil and that he has actually gone on a journey for political survival.
“We detest that. He took our sweat and blood and walked away and thinks he can pee on our heads? We are going to challenge him and recall him. He took the mandate of the people and walked away with it.
“To compare in terms of capacity and intellectualism, who can Mayowa compete with here among the people that are seated. He will hear from us, now that he says we are evil, we will make him the evil person. Whoever takes the sweat of other people and walks away with it, the law of Karma is waiting at the corner for him.”
