The former governor lamented that he was just an edifice without influence when he was in ADC.

He insisted that candidates selection procedure made him to leave the African Democratic Congress (ADC).

He said that “they started doing things they didn’t tell us before we joined the party. They didn’t tell us that some persons will be given automatic ticket.

“We questioned the integrity of those the wanted to give automatic ticket. What is the assurance that people will vote for them.

“When we saw that we couldn’t persuade them to do the right thing, we decided to leave the party because we aren’t sure of its future.”

Ladoja also spoke about the chances of ZLP governorship candidate.

He said, “I will only counsel Sarafadeen Alli when he becomes governor. I can’t run his government for him. He would be the one to receive praises or insults, so he will do well to heed to good counsels”.

“I almost neglected my family when I was in government because I gave my all to ensure good governance.
