“He has facilitated employment to over 125 unemployed youths in several agencies, institutions and parastatals, among others,” Soneye stated.
Reacting to the reason for which it has become imperative for Ikeja people to vote for Faleke again, the APC LGA chairman of Ojodu LCDA, Alhaja Olusola Kokumo, stated that, “It is very important for the people of Ikeja Federal Constituency to vote for him because he still has more to offer the people, to whom much is given, much is expected of him.”
She stated further, “Hon. Faleke has been giving to his constituency, so it is a pay back time for us as his supporters. That is the reason we need to vote him back to power.”
Reacting to the popular saying of the people describing Hon. Faleke as ‘a man of the people’, Kokumo said that Hon. Faleke is a man of the people because he is a Philanthropist, he is not only giving to politicians but he is also giving to voters.
Her words: “You cannot cry to Faleke and come back with tears, he is always ready to sacrifice and bring smiles to people’s faces. He knows how to deal with people as well. To whom much is given, much is expected of him. This is why the people of Ikeja Federal Constituency are ready to pay him back for all the good things he has done for them.
“You can knock Hon. Faleke’s door at any time and he will open for you. We don’t even know that lawmakers can give us poverty alleviation. It was the tenure of Faleke that we got to know that lawmakers can wipe away tears. Faleke is a God sent, he is a man of the people and Ikeja people are ready to vote for him”, Kokumo stated.
She also urged supporters to get their PVCs in order to make their votes count, not only for Hon. Faleke, but also to other APC candidates vying for different posts in the coming elections.
Reacting to the reason to justify the need to vote for Hon. Faleke as member of Ikeja Federal Constituency, a former LGA president, Onigbongbo LCDA, Alhaji Kehinde Onifade stated that Faleke is a man for the job and it is important that the Ikeja people give him their votes again.
“Nothing more than he should continue the good job. Faleke we trust, I know he will continue the good job”, Onifade added.
Also speaking with AN24TV, a member of the APC Presidential Campaign Council (PCC), Ziggy Ibeh also urged APC supporters to get their PVCs ready ahead of the general elections.
His words: PVC is the only visa that we have to vote people into power, so if you love any leader, then get your PVC because that is the only tool and power you have but without it, all will amount to making noise. So, if you love Faleke, Tinubu and other leaders, PVC is the only tool and power you have”, Ibeh stated.
Also, some of the beneficiaries of Hon. Faleke empowerment programme, gave testimonies and urged the people to again vote for Faleke as member House of Representatives, Ikeja Federal Constituency.
