Ladoja is still Accord Governorship Candidate in Oyo State


The Ladoja campaign organisation has denied a report read on Osun Radio that Senator Rashidi Ladoja has decamped to Action Congress of Nigeria (CAN ) and was present at their Mapo rally on Saturday. The Media aide to Senator Ladoja, Lanre Latinwo stated that the said news is another way by irrelevant politicians to use the name of Senator Ladoja to win the peoples' attention. He said that the news is malicious, deceitful, and shameful.

Honourable Latinwo appealed to the people of Oyo state to disregard the news by the ACN as Senator Ladoja is still the Governorship candidate of Accord in the April 16, 2011 general election.

Speaking on Radio Kwara on Sunday, Senator Ladoja noted that name dropping is synonymous with those who can not point any finger at what they have done in the past. This same people are fond of using the name of the latesage Chief Obafemi Awolowo to deceive people to believe in them when they cannot do what the late sage did. Senator Ladoja said that Papa Awolowo did his best for his generation and the present generation. He asked those who use other peoples' name to use their own names and good works they did when they had the opportunity of serving the people.

Honourable Latinwo, then, asked the people of Oyo state to know that Chief Sarafa Alli and his co-travellers were never part of Accord in Oyo state. They were PDP members who at a time joined others to institute court action against their party( PDP) before moving to the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN). The media aide to Senator Ladoja said that Accord as a movement in Oyo state is open to anybody who wish to join. He noted that within two months Accord has made tremendous impart in the state.

He called on all well meaning people of Oyo state to join hands with Accord to move the state forward. He appealed to them to avoid day dreamers who are fond of using other peoples names and good works to launder their image.

Honourable Latinwo concluded by saying that Senator Rashidi Ladoja's contribution to the emergence of democracy in the present day Nigeria is note worthy. The good works between 2003 and 2007 of Senator Ladoja, he said speaks volumes.
