Don’t smear Ajimobi, Oyo ACN warns Accord
The Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), Oyo State chapter, has warned the Senator Rashidi Ladoja-led Accord Party (AP) to desist from its campaign of calumny against the government’s urban renewal programme.
ACN said Ladoja, while governing the state, demolished major buildings as well as shops and shanties and no one brought the government down for doing so.
The ACN made this known in a release issued in Ibadan by its Publicity Secretary, Dauda Kolawole, in reaction to a newspaper advertorial by AP official, Bashiru Latinwo and Gbenga Elegbede, on Friday attacking the government.
According to the ACN, it was high time the Ladoja-led AP was put in its right place as a party that thrives in deceit, double-standards and which hoped to make an inroad into the hearts of the people by banking on their so-called short memory.
“We could not have forgotten so soon how the Ladoja government demolished the church building on Ring Road, as well as the office of a construction company on the same road and heavens did not fall. The Ladoja government equally demolished shops at Orita Aperin-Adesola road, Orita Aperin-Elekuro road, Orita Aperin-Adekile road and Academy Under bridge and no one sought to destroy the government at the time.
“No one labeled the government Hitler for these acts. Why then would the Accord Party embark on a campaign to destroy the Ajimobi government which is being applauded all over for sanitizing the mess brought on the state by past governments’ inactivity? In any case, Ajimobi is constructing about 7,000 shops at Scout Camp, and there are about seven others scattered round Ibadan. The eleven local governments in the state capital are also building markets. Can Ladoja point at a single market he constructed in four years?” the ACN asked.
