We did not give him our mandate but was only declared the winner by the Supreme Court, All his actions and inactions since he was declared the winner by the court, he never consulted his constituents
“The Supreme Court decision of declaring him winner makes him insensitive to the plight of his constituents members, which makes it impossible for him to function effectively as our representative.
“The only constituency projects of Suleiman Jafaru Ribadu is the wooden canoe he distributed to the locals in the riverine communities of the three local government that makes up his constituency and nothing more, we can’t wait till 2023 to effect leadership change, but pleading with the speaker to declare his seat vacant as it better to be without a representative than to have someone like Jafaru in the House”.
“To the best our knowledge, we have no representative in the lower chamber of the National Assembly.
