ZLP will Address Mass Failure, Poor Salaries in Oyo, Says Ladoja
By Adams Akorede
Former governor of Oyo State and leader of the Zenith Labour Party, High Chief Rashidi Ladoja on Tuesday said the ZLP will address mass failure by students in public schools and bad salaries to workers in the state.
Ladoja also frowned at an alleged flagrant disobedience of court orders and insensitivity to human feelings of the present administration led by Governor Abiola Ajimobi in the state.
Chief Ladoja made this observation when reacting to an accusation made against the Ajimobi-led government by the traders of Temidire Onipako market in Egbeda local government of the state.
The traders had alleged that despite the ruling of a court in their favour not to be disturbed in their market, the government has refused, claiming to have appealed the case.
Ladoja who was on a campaign tour of the state, said disobedience of court orders is not limited to their case just as inhuman treatment of all cadres of workers has been their trademark.
“Imagine a party that promised workers heaven and earth only to keep on accumulating backlog of salaries running to six, 10 months making the salary worthless at the end of the day as a result of indebtedness. Just last week, workers in state government-owned institutions stormed his office over unpaid salary arrears of between three to 18 months.”
Ladoja asserted that a teacher who for lack of money had to trek a long distance before getting to work will be tired and unhappy, how then do we expect good results from our children?
“You recollect we were in court over Olubadan tussle, a competent court of the state delivered judgement against them,yet,they have no respect for it, they are on appeal, you can now see that disobedience to the rule of law by Ajimobi is not limited to you,”Ladoja stressed.
He therefore assured the traders that the atmosphere is for them to trade legitimately in a ZLP led government in the state.
Chief Ladoja then presented the gubernatorial candidate and his running mate, Sharafadeen Abiodun Alli as well as Prince Kola Olabiyi respectively to the people.
He assured the teeming supporters who trooped out in large numbers that Sharafadeen Alli will lead a good, urbane and humane government that will ensure a rebirth of the state where lives will become more abundant for the masses.
The party leader equally presented the Senatorial candidate for the district, Abiola Olaniyan and the House of Representatives candidate, Mufutau Ogunremi for the February 16 general elections.
