I won’t go back to PDP, says Ladoja
Gormer Oyo State Governor Rashidi Ladoja has said he will not lead his followers back to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Ladoja, who spoke with reporters in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, said he would not deceive himself by thinking that PDP leaders would welcome him back as the leader.
He said having succeeded in building Accord, he does not need to abandon it for a party where his chances of actualising his political dream are uncertain.
He said: “I am an engineer. I deal with physical materials. I am not a mathematician who imagines things. Accord is here as a major contender. By God’s grace, we have built the party and we are still building it. Why should I go to PDP at this time when the chances of Accord are very bright?”
The former governor debunked claims that he was under pressure from top PDP leaders at the national level to return to the party to give the All Progressives Congress (APC) a good fight in next year’s election.
“Who are those powers? Which pressure? Can you mention their names and where they have been putting pressure on me?”
The 69-year old Accord leader said he was not too old to be governor again.
