Despite the confirmation of political disassociation with ADC by our great leader Chief Ladoja, we are still able to sees around the state the political campaign billboards of some unpopular candidates of ADC, attaching the image of Chief Ladoja. We youths and the party members of Zenith Labour Party highly frown at this, as this already causing misconception within our party, confusing the voters and loyalist of Chief Ladoja.
Also, we are imploring the State securities to call to stop the false information of the ADC acclaimed governorship candidate spreading around that, High Chief Ladoja of Zenith Labour Party is ready to rejoin ADC, the party he left ceremoniously. This is to inform to whom it may concern that, High Chief Ladoja had left the ADC and already settled in Zenith Labour Party. We want Senator Lanleyin to wake up from his sleep, it is high time he decided to face his failure as a result of disloyalty to Chief Ladoja. ADC governorship candidate needs to stop misinform the voters, he needs to rebrand his own political profile and sell it to the people of Oyo state, not to be dreaming of sleeping on the laid Mat of great Chief Ladoja.
For clarification, Senator Rashidi Adewolu Ladoja is a leader of Zenith Labour Party, he had already denounced being a member of African Democratic Party ( ADC ) and announced publicly his political association with Zenith Labour Party ( ZLP )
More so, Senator Ladoja has done a press conference, going to radio stations, granted several interviews that, he belongs to ZLP but the bad political elements who are going no where want to continue confusing people on where the High Chief belongs.
In lieu of this, we the youths in Zenith Labour Party are calling all the state securities to use all their security apparatus to caution and stop anybody or political parties, most especially African Democratic Congress to stop using our leader ( Senator Rashidi LAdoja ) profiles and picture in rebranding their stained images with the aim to resell for the good people of the state “.

Senator Ladoja is a good man and must only attaches with good things and good people” Comr.
