Oyo faults Ladoja’s comments on Ibadan flyover

IBADAN — GOVERNOR Abiola Ajimobi-led administration in Oyo State has advised a former governor in the state, Senator Rashidi Ladoja to eschew political bitterness in his criticism of the Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, government.

The state government was reacting to the comments made by the ex-governor on the Mokola flyover commissioned by leaders of the party.

Speaking through the Commissioner for Works and Transport in the state, Mr. Kayode Adepoju, the state government said, “it is as if the former governor is deliberately out to misguide the people with a lot of information that are far from the truth, inconsistent and outright misinformation and which portrays the old man as somebody with little or no knowledge about the essence of a fly-over.”

There has been palpable anxiety in the government circles of Nigeria’s Oyo State over the alleged arrest of Mrs. Florence Ajimobi, wife of the governor, in the United Kingdom for alleged money laundering.

Reports on the web and some blogs claimed that the woman was arrested two weeks ago by the London Metropolitan Police on her 52nd trip to the UK since her husband became governor 17 months ago. She was allegedly found to be in possession of 400,000 pounds and thousands of dollars, with a combined value of N500million.

London Met Police has not issued any statement about her alleged arrest. And her name drew blank in a search of the Met Police website by P.M.NEWS.
