Amuwo Odofin constituents begin process to recall lawmaker who said most Nigerian youths are high on drugs



Eligible voters in Amuwo Odofin constituency 1, have commenced the recall process for Mojisola Alli-Macaulay, the lawmaker representing the constituency in the Lagos State House of Assembly, following her comment that most Nigerian youths are high on drugs all the time.

Recall that she made the assertion during a plenary on the carnage caused by hoodlums in the wake of the #EndSARS protest.

The lawmaker said in part, “The National Orientation Agency needs to get to work. We need to begin to orientate our young people. They need people who can talk to them from time to time. They are high on drugs all the time, most of them.

“They go to social media and say all sorts of things. I’m even scared to give my young children phones because I am scared of what they may see on social media. It is that bad.”

Well, the constituents have applied to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC to have her recalled and replaced.

Some voters also embarked on the collation of signatures to effect the recall process as over 50 percent of registered voters in Amuwo Odofin are required for her to be removed.
