Hon Abdulafatai Salman Baakini became the butt of joke at his Ajikobi ward yesterday as members of his constituents, led by Alhaji Tunde Alagbo, declared him a persona non-grata in the community.
The constituents of the lawmaker representing Ilorin West in the Kwara State House of Assembly, Abdulfatai Babakinni, said they have disowned him for not defecting to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Babakinni and Iliasu Ibrahim of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are the two lawmakers who have refused to join the APC.
The spokesperson of the APC elders in the constituency, Tunde Alagbo, said the APC members in Ilorin North-West Constituency hereby notify the public and the lovers of our amiable leader, Senator Bukola Saraki, that Abdufatai Babakinni is hereby disowned as a result of his political insincerity and disloyalty.
“All former members of the PDP in Kwara State defected to APC based on the conviction that the PDP can no longer protect our interest.
“In line with this, any member who fails to follow the directives of APC elders will not receive any favour from us.
“His refusal to join APC has not affected us negatively as he has not impacted on the lives of his people.”
