Former governor of Oyo state, Senator Rashidi Adewolu Ladoja has been reportedly rushed to the University College Hospital (UCH) in Ibadan, the capital of the state, over undisclosed ailment.
Ladoja who is the leader of African Democratic Congress (ADC) in the state, was reported to have collapsed during a meeting he held in Ibadan to review the chance of the party in the next week’s gubernatorial election in Osun state.
He was reported to have been involved in serious campaigns for his party in the state for the coming election.
One of his associates said that it was not a serious issue but confirmed of his admission at the Intensive Care Unit of the hospital, adding that he would soon be discharged
“There is nothing to fear about as our leader will return home either Friday or Sunday. He only needs some rests. The stress is too much”, the source said.
It was gathered that no official detail concerning his ailment has been confirmed but a member of the party suspected that it might be age factor. Senator Ladoja had on Thursday, September 13, led other members of his party to Ile Ife in Osun state to campaign for the party’s candidate at the fast approaching gubernatorial election in the state.
