Impeachment: Don’t Attempt To Rewrite History, Ladoja Tells Obasanjo

Erstwhile Governor of Oyo State, Senator Rashidi Ladoja, has reacted to the position of former President Olusegun Obasanjo on his impeachment.

Days back, while speaking at the launch of an autobiography of former Governor Adebayo Alao-Akala in Ibadan on Thursday November 6, Obasanjo said that Ladoja’s refusal to listen to his entreaties led to his impeachment.

However, reacting to the position, the former Governor countered Obasanjo’s claim.

In a statement released by his spokesperson, Alhaji Lanre Latinwo, on Friday November 6, Ladoja told Obasanjo not to rewrite history as no amount of damage control measure can wash him clean of his alleged involvement in his 2005 impeachment.

The statement read;

“The former president has forgotten that the nation’s apex court had ruled that there was no impeachment. Let Chief Obasanjo be told, point blank, that no amount of damage control would help him.

“Ladoja, therefore, has no regrets. He came to serve and he did just that to the best of his ability, the result of which is the love his people have for him till date.”

 

Recall that Ladoja was impeached as Oyo State governor in 2005, leaving his deputy, Alao-Akala as Governor of the South-West State until he was reinstated by the Supreme Court after 11 months.
