Why I dumped PDP – Ladoja

Former Governor of Oyo State, Senator Rashidi Ladoja, weekend, disclosed reasons why he dumped the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP and opted for Accord Party.

This came as he vowed to do everything possible to make his former party be  a forgotten after the April poll.
Ladoja, who will  slug it out with his successor in office, Governor Adebayo Alao-Akala,  said the party did not heed his warning and a party like that was doomed to fail.

He said, “a party that does not believe in people will fail. Since 2007, I have been advising the PDP to try and reconcile with the people of the southwest.

They have refused to do that. Instead, they believe that force which they used in 2007 elections will see them through again. We have seen the effects of their inaction. Since that time, they have lost Edo, Ondo, Ekiti, and Osun.

So, PDP will be swept off in Oyo state and I am not bothered because I know my party will win because the people of Oyo State are ready for us. They have tested me and the people of Ibadan loved us. We did a conference and people said it was Ladoja they wanted.

History is repeating itself. Anyway,  it is of no use talking to people that don’t know what they are talking about in politics. We are talking about people who want to serve and not about people who want to loot.”

He promised that he would run an all-encompassing government that would be incomparable with what they have seen before.

The National Chairman of the Accord Party, Muhammed Nalando, said  Ladoja was different from people in power today and “he wants to come back to salvage this state. These people have destroyed what he built and Accord has given him the mandate to come and salvage the people of this state”.
