Buni, other APC govs lobby Ladoja in Ibadan


Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe, Abubakar Badaru of Jigawa and Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi, on Sunday held closed-door meeting with former Governor Rashidi Ladoja of Oyo State in Ibadan.

The trio arrived at the Ondo Street residence of the former governor in the company of Dimeji Bankole, former Speaker, House of Representatives.

Mr Buni is the chairman of APC National Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC).

Mr Ladoja of Zenith Labour Party, was the leader of the coalition, which supported Governor Seyi Makinde in 2019 to win the election for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state.

The coalition brought together the African Democratic Congress (ADC), Zenith Labour Party (ZLP); Social Democratic Party (SDP); faction of Action Democratic Party (ADP) and a faction of Alliance of Democracy (AD).

A source at the meeting, who spoke on condition of anonymity to NAN, said the visitors arrived in Ibadan in Oyo State Government vehicles.

This, it was gathered, fuelled the suspicions that the meeting might have caught the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)-led government in the state unaware.

Though details of the meeting were sketchy, the source told NAN that the governors were in Mr Ladoja’s house to discuss issues of insecurity and the possibility of wooing him into the APC fold.

NAN reports that the visitors were received at Mr Ladoja’s House by Senator Abdulfatai Buhari (APC-Oyo North), Sharafadeen Alli and Bimbo Adepoju.

However, all efforts made to get Mr Ladoja and the governors to speak on outcomes of the meeting proved abortive as they declined comments.
