The All Progressives Congress in Idanre/Ifedore Federal Constituency of Ondo State on Wednesday said, there was no plan to recall the lawmaker representing the federal constituency in the House of Representatives, Mr. Bamidele Baderinwa.
Some youths in the constituency under the auspices of the Idanre/Ifedore Youth Coalition had last week threatened to mobilising the people of the constituency to start the process of recalling the lawmaker.
They also alleged that Baderinwa had abandoned the federal constituency for a long time and had no any positive impact in the lives of his constituents.
But the APC youth leader in Ifedore local Government, Mr. Adewale Adekunle, while speaking on behalf of the party ,said no such move in the federal constituency.
Adekunle said, the group calling for the recall of the lawmaker was a faceless group.
He noted that the people of the constituency were satisfied with the achievements of Baderinwa and there was no reason to recall him.
His words: ” I wish to state clearly that Bamidele Baderinwa has not defaulted on giving our constituency its deserved quality representation at the National Assembly. He has neither abandoned his people nor the constituency.
“He visits the constituency regularly and operates two functional constituency offices, one at Idanre and the other at Ifedore local government, where complaints are collated and attended to. There are evidences of his projects and philanthropic activities across the constituency
“The youth group (the Idanre/Ifedore Youth Coalition) is unknown in our federal constituency. As the APC youth leader, I know all the youth groups in the constituency but the one calling for the recall of Baderinwa is faceless and fake.”
“There is nothing like starting the process of recalling our representative in the National Assembly. The main objective of the sponsors of the faceless group is to undermine the popularity of our party in the federal constituency by casting the lawmaker in bad light.”
