Former Oyo State Governor, Rashidi Ladoja has faulted comments by his former Deputy, Adebayo Alao-Akala where he alleged that he was prevented from performing his constitutional duties during his stint as his number two.
Ladoja in a statement issued by his media aide, Lanre Latinwo described claims by Alao-Akala as white lies.
‘’The claims that Alao-Akala was not allowed to perform while in Office as Deputy to Senator Ladoja, is a figment of his imagination because as a one-time Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, the former governor is adequately equipped with the law.
‘’Alao-Akala was just being economical with the truth because he was presenting to the public a different scenario as against what really took place when he was Deputy to Senator Ladoja.
“At 70, why is Otunba Akala trying to rewrite history by telling what can be best described as white lies” the statement said.
The former Governor explained that he only took off responsibilities from Akala after he emerged as the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), to enable him concentrate on his campaign.
