Oyo 2015: Ladoja remains Accord’s flagbearer—Chairman

Mr Bashir  Lawal, the Chairman of  Accord Party in Oyo State, says  a former governor of the state, Sen. Rashidi  Ladoja, remains the party’s flagbearer in the 2015 governorship election in the state.

Lawal said  this  in Ibadan while receiving  executive members of the Oyo State Correspondents’ Chapel of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ).

“ We have no governorship aspirant but a governorship candidate in the   person of  Sen.  Rashidi Ladoja,’’ he said.

He bemoaned the rate at which politicians defect  from one party to the other, hinging  this  on lack of political will to implement the nation’s constitution.

“ Lack of political will on the part of our politicians to faithfully implement the country’s constitution is at the heart  of the nation’s political problems.

” With the existence of such will, it will be easier to order defectors to vacate their seats,” he said.

Lawal  expressed optimism  that the party would take over government from the ruling All Progressives Congress  (APC) in the state in 2015.

“The APC was founded on a sandy foundation and it is presently crumbling. They won the election in 2015 through the support of various strange groups.

“Now, majority of  these strange fellows have been returning to their parties, some to the PDP, some to Labour Party and we are also welcoming others into our party,” he said.

Earlier, the party’s Publicity Secretary, Dr Nureni Adeniran, had  commended members of the chapel for their accurate reportage of political events in the state.

He urged the correspondents to sustain their  fairness in reportage of events as the 2015 elections approaches. (NAN)
