Some Southwest leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday said Sen. Rashidi Ladoja had endorsed Prince Uche Secondus and stepped down to become Deputy National Chairman (South).
They accused him of trading the interest of the zone to produce the chairman for his personal ambition.
But Ladoja denied the accusation yesterday, insisting he remained a candidate for chairman.
Ladoja, a former governor of Oyo State, told our reporter yesterday that the claim was untrue.
According to him, all aspirants from the zone held a meeting on Wednesday to choose a consensus candidate but the meeting was inconclusive, adding that it would continue last night. But the outcome was unknown last night
