I will not return any stolen fund to EFCC – Rashidi Ladoja

Former Governor of Oyo State , Rashidi Ladoja, on Friday said he
will not refund any money to the Economic and Financial Crimes
Commission, EFCC.
The former governor said he was not worried by the ongoing suit
filed against him by the anti-graft agency.
He said the would not refund any money because he did not steal
while in government.
The antigraft agency had dragged Ladoja to court over alleged
misappropriation of about N6.6 billion of state funds while in office
between 2003 and 2007.
The former governor, who recently returned to the Peoples
Democratic Party, PDP, also gave the hint of leaving the party
Ladoja told reporters, “It was true that I did not return any money
to the purse of the anti – graft agency because I did not steal
state’s money . Why would I refund money when I did not steal
any money? I am not bordered. It is true that EFCC said I didn’t
refund money. This is because I did not steal any money.
“The man said Ladoja has not refunded any money and he didn’t
say the amount Ladoja has stolen that has to be refunded. He said
EFCC has recovered money from other people but it has not
recovered any money from Ladoja, so why must I be worried? I
have not refunded any money as he said. As far as I am concern,
there is no case there.”
He added, “If I voluntarily went to the PDP and there was
something I believed that were not doing the right way , there is no
need for me to stay there. We don’t want the situation that a
congress that was done correctly will now be set aside. The
stakeholders in Oyo State have decided that if the impunity
continues after the seven days ultimatum, we may take our leave.

Is it right for Federal Government to dialogue and compensate killer herdsmen and bandits?
