Ladoja Never Assented to ZLP Leaders’ Meeting with Makinde — Party Secretary

The leadership of the Zenith Labour Party has openly dispelled the notion it instructed the meeting of some of its members with the governor of Oyo State.

The secretary of the party in the state, Bimbo Adepoju, who spoke to newsmen said ZLP chairman, Wole Abisoye and others acted on their own.

It would be recalled that Abisoye was said to have led members of the ZLP to the government house on Wednesday evening to negotiate their defection to the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

But Adepoju said Rashidi Ladoja, a former governor of Oyo State and leader of the ZLP, was not happy with the meeting.

He said the only meeting Ladoja authorized was a meeting that held last Friday between notable members of the ZLP, including its governorship candidate, Sharafadeen Alli, and the leadership of the opposition All Progressives Congress, APC, at the Premier Hotel to negotiate defection into the party.

He added that if Ladoja would have anything to do with PDP, he would not have sent any of those who attended the meeting with Makinde.

Adepoju affirmed that those with the party chairman were merely a handful which include Egbeda local government, Evangelist Suberu, Adedokun from Ibadan North East, and no other party LG chairman.

Taking a swipe at Abisoye and those he described as his co-travelers, Adepoju affirmed that he and the rest of the party are unbothered about the actions of those he described “unloyal”.
