PDP-National-Chairman-Alhaji-Bamanga-TukurA former governor of Oyo State, Senator Rashidi Ladoja, on Tuesday blasted the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), saying it has lost focus and has been hijacked by a majority, who do not mean well for the nation’s democracy.

Ladoja stated this while speaking with media practitioners in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.

Taking a critical look at the ongoing crisis rocking the ruling party and past crises including the one that led to his impeachment in 2006, Ladoja, who once was a member of PDP, said the reason accounts for why he cannot consider returning to the party for now.

The Accord Party (AP) chieftain also cited the recent Anambra State governorship election as one means through which the PDP could be assessed.

Specifically, Ladoja said the problems of the party manifested in its inability to conduct a simple primary to produce its flag bearer until one week before the election.

In the former governor’s view, the current National Chairman of the PDP, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur means well for the party but is being hindered by undemocratic forces.

“Tukur came in to correct this ill but I think he is seeing more than he thought.

“It is difficult. May be God will be kind to us one day such that we can have democrats in the majority in the party because whatever they do largely affects the country,” he said.

Ladoja likened his impeachment in 2006 to the current travails of Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi, stressing that governance must have grounded to a halt in the state since the beginning of the crisis as the governor would be busy fighting to save his political career.

The former governor also disclosed why the recent widely reported partnership between him and his successor; Adebayo Alao-Akala did not work out, saying he was not ready to dump PDP now due to the privileges accruing to him (Alao-Akala) there.

He said, “Akala approached me if we could work together. We didn’t even talk or think about what happened in the past. Yesterday is gone. We can only learn lesson from it and use it to plan for tomorrow. All I want is to work for the benefit of Oyo State. We set up a committee but personal interest changed many things. Bayo is not ready to get out of PDP. Our party (AP) does not have any privileges to offer. I think he doesn’t want to leave PDP because of the privileges he enjoys there. As far as am concerned, our doors are open”.
