Ladoja Is Working For APC, Facilitated Omisore’s Alliance With Oyetola—ADC Alleges


The leadership of the African Democratic Congress, ADC, has hit the party’s former leader, Sen. Rashidi Ladoja following his consistent outbursts against party.

In a statement this afternoon by the party’s publicity secretary, Adedapo Ademola, ADC said Ladoja’s constant denigration of the party is an attempt to weaken the morale of its members in order to brighten the chances of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.

This is just as the party alleged that Ladoja was one of those who talked former senator Iyiola Omisore, who was the candidate of the Social Democratic Party, SDP, in last year’s Osun governorship election, into working for the victory of Governor Gboyega Oyetola.

Ladoja, OYO INSIGHT recalled, left ADC citing non-inclusion in decision making by those he termed ‘invincible.’


Without a shadow of doubt, the series of coordinated attacks against our party, the African Democratic Congress (ADC), and by extension, our governorship candidate, Senator Olufemi Lanlehin, by former governor Rasidi Ladoja is most unfortunate, and has shown to us, the undercurrents that led to his eventual exit from our party.

While we do not begrudge him for taking whatever decision he deems best for his political future, we consider it impolitic for him to continue in his unwarranted campaign of calumny against our party, citing nonexistent issues, and cooking up barefaced lies to whip up sentiments in the public square.

To go on air, the latest of which was his rant on Gravity FM, claiming “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”, is not only misleading but grossly unfair.

We like to ask governor Ladoja what he means by “doing the right thing”; and what other right thing he’s talking about, when he was indeed responsible for nominating 16 out of 32 House of Assembly Candidates, 4 of 14 Representatives, and 1 of 3 Senatorial Candidates, not minding the existence 5 formidable blocs within the ADC.

Not considering all of this, and continuing to frontally attack the ADC is most uncharitable, when the party, and its candidate has consistently avoided any confrontation with him, despite repeated provocations.

It is on the strength of this that Senator Ladoja’s statements on air denigrating our party, and consciously playing the spoilsport role in an orchestrated design to pull down our brand, and forestall a people’s government already waiting in the wings, must be condemned by all lovers of truth, and democracy.

Isn’t it surprising, or is it a mere coincidence that while Senator Ladoja was on air in Igboho, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo was in Saki, same day? Isn’t the plan a well coordinated and carefully planned one in the mode of “Osinbajo buying votes using their unpopular Tradermoni Scheme, and Ladoja denigrating the ADC, which has grown to become the state’s leading opposition, and only credible alternative platform”?

This scheme isn’t new, just what’s new is APC’s devious scheming which it continues to  improve upon on a daily basis. What’s public knowledge was its devilish collusion with former Osun deputy governor, Otunba Iyiola Omisore to thwart the people’s choice in the last Osun elections. We, therefore, suspect ex governor Ladoja may be travelling that same ignominious route this election cycle.

Further to that, with his EFCC case still hanging on his neck like an albatross, and the possibility of a jail term lurking around, we understand governor Ladoja’s need for needing a safety net, and running into the waiting embrace of the equally shameful APC. He would therefore be willing to do anything to curry his benefactor’s favour. We can only wish both parties conjugal bliss in their unholy wedlock.

Conclusively, we advise former governor Ladoja to instead of dissipating energy castigating the ADC and its candidates, to concentrate, and deploy same energy in selling his badly damaged product, which has been unable to fly, nearly two months after its wrecked takeoff, while we admonish the good people of Oyo State to continue in their support for Senator Olufemi Lanlehin (SOLAN), the ADC, and all its candidates.
