The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State yesterday said Accord Party’s governorship candidate, Senator Rashidi Ladoja, has no hiding place, following reports that he received N100 million from the former Chairman, Board of Trustees (BoT) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Tony Anenih.
The Accord Party, AP, in a letter to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) by its National Secretary, Nureni Akanbi, said Ladoja, who is its national leader, received the N100 million to mobilize support for former President Goodluck Jonathan in the 2015 election.
The Oyo APC in a statement by its spokesperson, Olawale Sadare, said it was time for Ladoja to submit himself for trial rather than playing the ostrich.
“We are dismayed at the latest attempt by Ladoja to justify his involvement in the illegal sharing of the funds meant to purchase arms and ammunition to secure Nigeria.
“The statement by Akanbi on Friday was apparently on Ladoja’s order. He wanted to save his face, using premeditated tactics.
“Rather than make belated attempts to re-write the story of his betrayal of his party supporters, or his disgraceful connivance with others to loot the nation’s treasury, the former governor should just shelve his toga of deceit and show remorse over his previous anti-people activities in his private and public life.
“It is an established fact that the N100 million he claimed to have received from Anenih represents a fraction of what he realised from the surreptitious sale of the Accord to the PDP”.
