Yakubu Danladi , majority leader , Mogaji Olawoyin as well as other members of the House over failures to empower their constituents despite huge take home attached to their individual offices
Ramoni who made this known during a campaign flag of in Babaloma , Ifelodun LG , said out of all 24 members of this 9th Assembly headed by Yakubu Danladi, only Owolabi had been able to carry out few empowerments for his Constituents while the rest lawmakers pocket their money leaving constituents languishing in poverty.
The Governor who spoke shyisly in Yoruba language to his Audience said he’s surprised that out of 24 APC lawmakers elected by people , only one (Owolabi) is coming back to his Constituents with empowerments.
“It even amazed me how Owolabi is doing all these , he and other members of the House (Speaker inclusive) are earning same salary , what’s now the difference? The Governor queried
Answering the question himself , Ramoni submitted that other lawmakers in the House are selfishly enriching themselves and their families.
“The difference is that while the rest lawmakers in the House of Assembly are pocketing their own money and spending it on their individual families, only Owolabi is not poketing his own, you can see he’s wearing lace “
