Ladoja:Accord Party remains a strong movement for change
Senator Rashidi Ladoja has thanked the people of Oyo State for voting for the Accord Party in last Saturday’s National Assembly election, stating that from the trend of voting, it was clear that Accord Party still remained a very strong movement for change in the state.
Senator Ladoja noted that the election indicated the acceptance and spread of Accord Party across Oyo State within four months. He then urged the electorate to troop out in large numbers to vote for Accord Party as the party that could provide the necessary infrastructure for the development of the state in the areas of education, health, agriculture, water and sanitation, wards and youth employment.
The Accord Party standard-bearer said that he had not endorsed any presidential candidate contrary to a news release last Thursday. He berated dirty politicians who would go all out to lie to win votes. He advised the people of the state to avoid such people as they would deny them when they get into government.
Senator Ladoja emphatically said that he had not asked people to vote for President Goodluck Jonathan or any presidential candidate.
He said that he was committed to the growth of the state in commerce and industry, which would in turn lead to job creation and employment. He made it clear once again that he had not stepped down for any person.
Meanwhile, the media aide of Senator Ladoja, Alhaji Lanre Latinwo, has debunked the story released last Thursday on Splash FM that the former governor had asked people to vote for any presidential candidate in Nigeria, saying that the story was malicious, false and damaging to the image of Accord Party and that of Senator Ladoja.
He said that contrary to some so-called progressives’ lies that Senator Ladoja would return to his former party, the Accord Party standard-bearer had left the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for good. The media aide advised the people of the state not to listen to them because they do not have anything other than telling old women tales. He asked them to tell the state what they did before as a way of replicating it.
Alhaji Latinwo reminded the people of Oyo State of the impact of godfatherism in the present polity. He said that the state went through a period of feeding of a gang of elite over the interest and welfare of the people, which Senator Ladoja stood for.
He said that market men and women of Bodija would not forget how a political merchant supported the present government to demolish stalls and forced them to rent his shops opposite Bodija market.
The media aide assured the people of the state that with Senator Ladoja and Accord Party in government, “we will not have to pay godfathers with the state wealth.”
He called on the people of Oyo State to choose between another four years of slavery or a prosperous four years with Senator Ladoja who fought the godfathers to win freedom for the people of oyo state.
