Fielding questions from journalists in his Ondo Street, Bodija residence shortly after perfoming the Eid-el-Fitr prayers, Senator Ladoja expressed grave concern over the alleged inciting broadcast emanating from Radio Biafra submitting that the security agencies have their reasons for jamming the purported radio station.
Daily Trust reports that he declared: “I have not heard the radio. The security agencies have their reasons for jamming it. And as far as I am concerned, there is no Biafra. Even, I don’t think MASSOB is the one broadcasting.
“The East cannot do without Nigeria. About 70 per cent of the Igbo origins are scattered about different parts of Nigeria while the remaining 30 per cent are resident at home. So, the Igbos cannot afford to throw Nigeria into another problem because they are the ones that will suffer most. If some Easterners want to create whatever awareness or diversions, we should just ignore them because the people of the East cannot afford to have a divided Nigeria.”
Commenting on the avalanche of criticisms already greeting President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration, Senator Ladoja maintained that “it is too early in the day to judge Buhari who is yet spend his 100 days in office.”
“May be in the sixth month or thereabout. He is still taking stock of what he met on ground. Nigerians should tarry a while and resist being in a hurry to assess the President,” he said.
On the crisis rocking the National Assembly, Senator Ladoja remarked that the lawmakers in the Legislative chambers are capable of resolving their differences if they are allowed to do so as they have rules that allow them to elect their leaders.
“They (the lawmakers) have been voted for and they should be allowed to prove their worth,” he stated.
