2023: Ladoja, Bankole meet behind closed doors
The former governor of Oyo State, Rashidi Ladoja, and the father of former Speaker, House of Representatives, Alani Bankole, met behind closed doors in Abeokuta on Sunday.
The meeting, which held in Mr Bankole’s home, lasted about four hours.
The meeting held exactly one week after Dimeji Bankole accompanied three All Progressives Congress governors to a visit to Ladoja’s home in Ibadan.
The meeting between Ladoja and Bankole’s father which ended 5:00pm might not be unconnected with the 2023 election.
Speaking shortly after the meeting, Ladoja described his visit as a ‘usual visit’ to his brother.
Ladoja charged the youths in the country to be politically active in the coming election.
He however said he and Bankole have left partisan politics for the youths in the country.
He said “I came to visit my brother. It was a usual visit. I have quit partisan politics and my brother (Bankole ) had left partisan politics.
“One needs to quit when the ovation is loudest for the young ones.”
Ladoja however declined to assess the state of the nation.
Bankole also declined comment on the reasons for the closed-door meeting with Ladoja.
