A former governor of Oyo State, Rashidi Ladoja, has criticized the state Governor, Abiola Ajimobi, over his claim that the coronation of the Olubadan of Ibadan land, Oba Saliu Adetunji, cost the state one hundred million naira.
Ladoja was reacting to the statement the governor made on the state broadcasting outfit during an interview on Saturday. In a statement, the former governor stated that Ibadan people did not beg the governor for money for the coronation of the monarch a year ago.
Ladoja asked if the money spent was budgeted for, stating that Oyo State money should be spent judiciously for the use of all the people of the state and not a section of it as the coronation was just for Ibadan people.
Ladoja also chided the state governor over the suggestion that tuition fee at the state-owned Ladoke Akintola University of Technology should be reviewed. He also denied ever receiving a gift of a plot of land from the present government.
