The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has given the embattled Kogi state Deputy Governor elect, James Faleke seven days to make up his mind or be booted out of the House of Representatives.

The PDP accused Faleke of political immorality, adding that he cannot represent the people of Lagos and Kogi states at the same time.

The Lagos PDP chairman, Capt. Tunji Shelle(rtd.) said “Faleke should not continue to represent the Ikeja constituency because he presently has his voting unit relocated to Kogi State. This is open assault to decent democracy and ridicules the nation before the international community.”

Adding that “If the demand is not met within the period of this ultimatum, we shall use all means permitted and effective to reclaim the seat for Lagos State.”

Faleke on the other hand has dismissed the comments saying “Shelle must have read the constitution upside down by reading immorality to what I have done. He should consult experts to have a better understanding of the statute book.

“Why should he give me a seven-day ultimatum? If he is so serious about what he is saying, he should go to court tomorrow. This is a constitutional democracy. The law is there to be tested.”

James Faleke is also the House of Representatives member representing Ikeja federal constituency of Lagos sate.
