Former Oyo State Governor, Rashidi Ladoja has criticized President Muhammadu Buhari’s recently launched “Change Begins With Me” programme.
According to Ladoja, change must start from Buhari and members of his cabinet.
The former governor made the comments while speaking to journalists at his home in Ibadan, Oyo State, after observing the Eid prayers.
“I think the change starts with President Buhari. Look at what INEC said about the change in date in Edo State election. They said it is colossal waste and nobody has convinced us about the postponement. They cited security reasons. Billions of naira has gone down the drain. We are wasteful,” Ladoja said according to Vanguard.
“I am not in their party. My party has no candidate in Edo. I just know that it is wrong. We have fixed this date for a long time and they first said it was because of WAEC but the date it has been shifted to again also has WAEC exams. Are you now going to ask WAEC to change the date also? We are still playing games. I am sure that if APC were sure that they will win Edo election, they will not have postponed it,” he added.
President Buhari has come under criticism for the programme which many see as telling citizens to change their ways before expecting the change promised by Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) led government.
