The Oyo All Progressive Congress(APC) have mocked the former governor of Oyo state over his kind gesture of five million naira donation to the Fund LAUTECH project initiated by the Alumni of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology.
According to the Publicity Secretary of APC, Mr. Wale Sadare, on Thursday, he noted that Ladoja was only trying to return a minute part of his looted funds from the Oyo state’s treasury.
“Former Governor Ladoja, for the records, is being prosecuted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for a N4.7bn fraud. Senator Ladoja is giving back to the society what he has taken from them. There was a time he returned N500m to the coffers of the state and what he is doing again is to use part of Oyo State funds to support the SGB initiative of the present administration in the state.
“We want to state that it is the collective patrimony of the people Oyo State that was mismanaged by governor Ladoja and his former aides. This took its toll on the economy of the state and a large chunk of it should have been donated to the #fundLAUTECH initiatives.
“We want to appeal to Senator Ladoja and his co travellers in the Accord Part to thread the path of honour by returning a larger sum of money from the N4.7bn stolen funds to the Oyo state Government coffers. Governor Ajimobi has promised to use 100% of the refund to fund LAUTECH.
