Falohun said’ ‘ those who know me know that I am a very blunt person. If Jimi Benson was not performing, I would still have said it to his face. But, I am so happy that he has made some of us proud and has therefore proven himself as a man who is worthy of our support’ he said.
Going down memory lane, Evang. Falohun added’ ‘when he came in 2015, many of our people criticized us for supporting him, a new comer. They complained that we were going to make a mistake of making Jimi Benson rub us of democracy dividends in Ikorodu. Today, Jimi has proven every doubting thomases wrong.’
Towing the same line, another party chieftain, Alh Enifeni who said he was one of those who did not support Jimi Benson in 2015 for reasons best known to him. ‘Though, I did not support Jimi Benson in 2015, for reasons best known to me and Jimi himself.

Hon Wasiu Adeshina, executive Chairman, Ikorodu Central also added his voice to the stream of encomiums being poured on Jimi Benson and his wife, ‘Before Hon Jimi Benson became our representative, we used to think that once we elect a representative at the national assembly, we can only see them on television, considering the far distance. We never thought we could have a member of the house of reps that will be given us free monthly food and frequent feedbacks on his activities in Abuja’.
Responding, Hon Babajimi Benson expressed gratitude to party APC chieftains and members of his constituency for their prayers and unalloyed support since he won the elections in 2015.
