Rashidi Ladoja Former Oyo governor, returns to PDP

Published

Rashidi Ladoja

Former Oyo governor Rashidi
Ladoja, who defected to the Accord Party to contest the state’s
governorship seat in the 2015 general elections, has returned to the
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). Ladoja, along with Mr Seyi Makinde, a chieftain of the Social Democratic Party(SDP) in the state, moved to the PDP on Thursday in Ibadan, when Sen. Ahmed Makarfi, Chairman of the PDP National Caretaker Committee, visited the Oyo capital.

The
former governor, who won the seat on the ticket of the PDP in 2011,
said that he was returning to his home, adding that it was not his wish
to leave the PDP when he did.
“When I left the PDP some years ago, it was because of the injustice done to me.
“We
left because the PDP leaders, at that time, were not ready to protect
the interest of all members. We are back now because the new leadership
has promised to right all wrongs and avoid mistakes of the past.
“I
have discussed with members of the Accord party and they have asked for
amnesty; we need assurance from Makarfi that Accord Party members will
be given equal treatment and a level playing ground,”
Ladoja stated
In his response, Makarfi said that he came to Ladoja “to take you back to where you belong”.
“We want you to return to your great beginning; we want to start all over again as one family,” he said.
Makarfi
expressed optimism that Ladoja’s presence would add value to the PDP in
Oyo State, adding that he (Ladoja) had committed no crime to warrant a
plea for amnesty.
He implored PDP members
to forget the past and work toward party unity, and assured Ladoja and
new PDP members of equal opportunity for all.
Makinde,
in his remark, assured Makarfi of his group’s total support to the
ideals of the PDP, urging him to protect the interest of his members.

Two PDP chieftains, Chief Richard Akinjide and Chief Yekini Adeojo,
who spoke at the occasion, commended Makarfi over his efforts to
reconcile warring factions and “especially for wooing new members into
the fold”.
Akinjide particularly promised
to assist Makarfi toward rebuilding the PDP, and urged him to carry all
members along, so as to create a sense of oneness.
The
News Agency of Nigeria(NAN) reports that hundreds of Accord party, SDP,
and PDP supporters received Makarfi who also visited Chief Christopher Alao-Akala, another former Oyo governor being wooed by Makarfi.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

Reno Omokri ‘s tweet reads:

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
@MBuhari
