Ladoja pledges to return Education to her glorious past
Senator Rashidi Adewolu Ladoja, the Accord governorship candidate for the April 16, 2011 election, has described Alhaji Lam Adesina's administration in Oyo State as a total failure and therefore the present Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) in Oyo State cannot lay any claim to good governance. He made this declaration at Olomi area of Ibadan on his governorship campaign tour. Olomi, the venue of the campaign has being witnessing a lot of turbulence before Senator Ladoja's open air campaign which was peaceful and highly successful.
The Accord governorship candidate said that Alhaji Lam Adesina's government gross inability to provide good and purposeful governance during his years in office as the executive governor of Oyo State shows that ACN with him in Oyo state is a disaster. He noted that the unsolicited outburst from Alhaji Lam Adesina on his person shows that their party lacks ideas to sell to the people of Oyo state. He also said that they ACN believe that they can score cheap points by withering the name of Senator Ladoja.
Senator Ladoja cited the total collapse of education system with overcrowded classrooms, dilapidated structures and the constant strikes by teachers during his time. He alleged that teachers and civil servants were owed several months' salaries and accumulated leave allowances. Senator Ladoja said that he cleared the mess Alhaji Lam Adesina caused amounting to five billion naira within 2 years.
The Accord governorship candidate wondered why the former governor who calls himself an Awoist could not pay teachers their entitlement despite the fact that he was a professional teacher. He reminded Alhaji Lam Adesina that when he was the governor the fortune of Lautech was the best state University in Nigeria and the overall fifth best University in Nigeria. Senator Ladoja asked the people of Oyo state to ask Alhaji Adesina what was the state of education under his government that he is now pushing for a candidate to contest for the position he couldn't manage well?
Senator Ladoja promised that his administration will within two years restore the problems on ground. He promised a special intervention in education to return education to the state that made other states to applaud Oyo state. He promised to bring about a lasting peace in Olomi area and tackle the problems linked to the area.
Senator Ladoja, then, called on the people of Oyo state to come en mass and vote for all Accord candidates in the April, 2011 general elections. The Accord campaign train will make a quick stopover at Ona-Ara local government area of Oyo state.
