Ladoja’s ungratefulness caused him impeachment, Obasanjo reveals.
Olusegun Obasanjo, an erstwhile Nigerian president, has said that Rashidi Ladoja, a former governor of Oyo state, could have avoided impeachment if he was loyal and grateful to Lamidi Adedibu and Yekinni Adeojo.
At the launching ceremony of Adebayo Alao-Akala’s autobiography, Obasanjo went down memory lane to recall that Ladoja was defiant to his plea to reconcile with Adedibu (now late) and Adeojo, a prominent politician in Oyo.
Obasanjo went on to narrate how Ladoja picked a quarrel with him because he told the former governor that his rise to the office was due to the massive contribution of the duo.
The former head of state said:
“You pointed out on page 140 that Ladoja picked up a quarrel with me for the reason of a non-existent third term”.
“I didn’t know that Ladoja picked up a quarrel that his becoming governor was due to the grace of God and major contributions of the two people”.
“I pleaded with him to make accommodation for them both. He told me that they were all Ibadan people and they knew how to deal with themselves. He subsequently proved himself right as they dealt with themselves and he, Ladoja, came out the worse for it.”
