Member of the House of Representatives, Mr Dennis Idahosa (APC-Edo), has said that any politician who fails to deliver on their campaign promises to the people should be stoned.
The representative of Ovia federal constituency said the same fate would befall politicians in his constituency considering the high standard that had been set in the constituency, noting the people would no longer tolerate any none performer.
Idahosa made the declaration when he distributed motorcycles to 160 women and youths as empowerment at Iguobazuwa, in Ovia South-West Local Government Area, Benin, Edo on Saturday.
“Politics is not about winning elections but fulfilling your campaign promises; here. I can say that any politician that does not fulfil his campaign promises to the electorate should be stoned.
He said, “Again, here, we are fulfilling part of our campaign promises. This is not just my commitment to the people of Ovia federal constituency, but also my commitment to God and to change the narrative of the past.
Ovia has seen the light; gone are the days when you convert what is meant for the people to yourself. By the time we are done, whoever that will come must perform or they will be stoned.”
