2019: Ladoja playing God in Oyo politics – Senator Agboola

The immediate past Deputy Chief Whip of the Senate, Senator Hosea Ayoola Agboola, yesterday, said the role being played by the former governor of Oyo State, Senator Rashidi Ladoja, in the crisis rocking the state chapter of the PDP portended danger for the party ahead of the 2019 general elections.

He alleged that the former governor was playing God with his threat to leave the party should the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party carry out the proposed harmonization of the state executive to assuage the perceived lop-sidedness in appointments.

Agboola, who was the only PDP senator from the South West between 2011-2015, while fielding questions from a Yoruba current affairs programme on Splash FM, Ibadan, urged the former governor to tackle the crisis as father rather than taking side.

“I am surprised that he said what I just heard from this clip.

“In the 2015 election, a number of PDP chieftains ditched the PDP and worked for Ladoja and his Accord Party but they all lost to the incumbent governor. What we are saying is that we need to harmonise the state party executive to give room for level playing field for all the aspirants.

“The threat to leave the party won’t do anybody any good but with God, nothing is impossible,” he said.

Agboola had earlier defended the monthly allowances and salaries of federal lawmakers, saying it had always been like that since the First Republic.
