Ladoja appeared at the unity luncheon of the PDP held in Osogbo which was held to further mend the factions in the party ahead of the coming election. In his goodwill message, Ladoja said the state must retrace its step from its mistakes to regain dominance of the southwest.
In his words, 'once upon a time, this great party reigned in five states of the southwest but because of our mistakes we lost four remaining only Ekiti. We have decided to come together now and regain all those lost states starting with Osun in 2018 up to the general election in 2019'.
