Our attention has been drawn to two publications in the Nation newspaper of Sunday November 14, 2010 titled: ‘Akala’s many battles’ and ‘EFCC managers take over 15 ex-governors’ N2 trillion mansions’ which are false.

The story of the EFCC that managers have taken over properties of 15 ex-governors worth 2 trillion naira which includes Senator Rasheed Adewolu Ladoja is not true. We wish to make it known to the public that no property of Senator Ladoja has been seized by the anti-graft body to date. Also, no single naira has been returned by the former Governor of Oyo State.

The Ladoja 2011 group challenges anybody to publish documents of property or properties and money seized from Senator Ladoja.
Even, the case is in court hence it is suppose to be a case in the hands of the judiciary.  The Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) is not expected to be the accuser, prosecutor and judge. It is proper to allow the judiciary to do their job and stop using the pages of newspapers to malign the name of Senator Rasheed Adewolu Ladoja who even swore that he did not add a block to the buildings he had before becoming the governor of Oyo State in 2003.

It is expedient that the media should adhere to the five a, b, c, d, and e of news values. The Accuracy of the news; balance; completeness; detachment of media from the story; and the ethics of the profession that gives the media the right to be the watchdog of the polity.

On the ‘Akala’s many battles’, we wish to draw your attention to the many self inflicted problems Otunba Akala has initiated. The Alaafin of Oyo’s story alleged attempt on his life by the governor. The National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) crisis in Oyo State was also a creation of Otunba Akala.

It is a known fact that the government of Otunba Akala has been peddling lies upon lies. He has been using propaganda to deceive his supporters. The issue of the People Democratic Party state executive which is non-existence but to him is in existence has come to the fore with INEC declaration that there is no Party executive in Oyo state.
