Oyo State chapter of Zenith Labour Party (ZLP), on Sunday declared that its doors are widely opened for any member of the state chapter of African Democratic Congress (ADC), and other politicians who wish to join the party ahead of the 2019 general elections.
The party, while urging the electorate to ignore those calling themselves ‘Ladoja group’ from different parts of the state, urged them to be wary of groups that are being sponsored by a “drowning political party looking for relevance following the movement of Senator Rashidi Adewolu Ladoja into the ZLP as her leader”.
Zenith Labour Party, in a statement issued in Ibadan, the state capital, by its Publicity Secretary, Mr. Olujide Olanipekun on Sunday, advised the so called ‘Ladoja group’ to wake up to the political reality by facing the empty shell they call their political party rather than crying wolf.
Olanipekun said that the party has finalised arrangement to kickstart an issue-based campaign with a view to redirect the political space in the state, stressing that the party was determined to reshape the political climate with an issue-based campaign.
The ZLP stated that the issues will focus on the enviable blueprint of the gubernatorial candidate of the party, Barrister Sharafadeen Abiodun Alli who has set the agenda that would respond favourably to the yearnings and aspirations of the good people of the state.
The party said, “The guber candidate, as an experienced politician, a professional and a technocrat has through the blueprint addressed the polemic issues affecting the state with the intention of providing workable solutions that will lead the state out of the unfortunately doldrum it has found itself in the last eight years of Ajimobi administration.
ZLP hereby urges the Oyo state Electorate and teeming members of the party to ignore some people who are calling themselves ‘Ladoja Group’ from different parts of the state being sponsored by a drowning Political Party looking for relevance following the movement of Senator Rashidi Adewolu Ladoja into the ZLP as her leader.
“We however advise the so called ‘Ladoja group’ to wake up to the political reality by facing the empty shell they call their political party rather than crying wolf.
“However, the doors of the ‘Noar’s Ark’ which ZLP represents are still wide open to whoever is ready to abandon the sinking boat they call political party as we are ever ready to accommodate new entrants in order to take Oyo state to enviable heights with purposeful governance.”
