A member of the Lagos State House of Assembly and a 2019 aspirant for the House of Representatives for Ifako Ijaiye Federal Constituency on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Hon. Dayo Saka Fafunmi, has put a lie to claims that he purchased both the form for the House of Representatives and that of the House of Assembly.
Responding to the rumour on his facebook page, the lawmaker said, “Like a flint, my heart and eyes is fixed on Ifako Ijaiye House of Representatives seat and I have never at any time contemplated any office with it as far as the 2019 General Election is concerned.
“Therefore, kindly disregard any purported information being peddled about by political desperado, rumour mongers, haters, and feeble opponents that I purchased both the House of Representatives and House of Assembly forms. It is a lie from the pit of hell and by those who have found it difficult to match my street credibility and popularity.
“Great people of Ifako Ijaiye Federal Constituency, this is borne out of your continuous show of support and loyalty which no doubt is giving sleepless nights to them.
“Based on your avowed love and commitment to my aspiration as demonstrated by your warm receptions, accolades, and celebration of love everywhere I go in the midst of All Progressives Congress party members and with my experience , competence, academic pedigree, and more importantly, my commitment to people-oriented projects and programmes.
“Consequently, kindly ignore the rumors they’re spreading that I obtained two forms. This cheap lies is a further demonstration of how much they fear the SAKA LEGACY.
As I move about from Ward to Ward, and group to group, I have no time to demean any candidate as time isn’t enough for me to name my numerous achievements. I strongly believe in Issues-Based Campaign which is what people want and need to hear,” he said.
The lawmaker who is a University of Ilorin trained engineer and a University of Lagos trained lawyer added that as election draws near, the mischief makers are likely to get desperate; “please disregard their wanton lies, as a man who lie to get a job will certainly lie to keep the job. They cannot be trusted and should not be trusted with power.”
