The deputy governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Oyo State, Engr. Raufu Aderemi Olaniyan has described the High Court judgment vindicating the former governor of Oyo State, Senator Rashidi Ladoja on allegation of fraud as the triumph of truth over falsehood.
This was contained in a statement signed by his media officer, Omolere Omoetan and made available to newsmen in Ibadan on Friday.
Olaniyan noted further that the judgement did not only exonerate Senator Ladoja, but all those who worked with him in the glorious years of the state between between 2003 and 2007.
Olaniyan who was the pioneer General Manager of Oyo State Road Maintenance Agency (OYSROMA) when Senator Ladoja was governor of the state noted that he had no doubt whatsoever that the Ibadan high chief would come out unscathed from the charges proffered against him, stressing that he has related with him closely and found him to be of impeccable character, and this attribute, the high court judgement attested to.
Olaniyan therefore congratulated Senator Ladoja for the verdict which he said further cemented his place in history has a true elder statesman not only in Oyo State, but in Nigeria as a whole
The Igboho born politician hoped that Senator Ladoja will work closely with the PDP governorship candidate Engr. Seyi Makinde, who is poised to consolidate on his achievement as a former PDP governor.
