LEADERS of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo West Council area, the home town of Governor Olusegun Mimiko have passed a resolution accepting him as the leader of the party following his alleged imminent defection to the party.
The PDP leaders, at a meeting held at the party secretariat in Yaba, Ondo, included Chief Segun Adegoke, Dr Temitayo Fawehinmi, Chief Olabisi Johnson, Prince Ademola Adeyemi, Capt Ademola Ariyo (rtd), Mr. Patrick Sekoni, Hon. Bola Ogundele and Hon Ayo Akinfolarin.
They unanimously resolved to work with the governor and members of the LP when they eventually join the party.
Adegoke, who was Special Adviser on Political Affair under the late Dr. Olusegun Agagu, said, “Ondo West local government welcomes the governor wholeheartedly, we are happy that he has joined us. His name is Omowalepada.
According to Adegoke, Mimiko was “once of us and has now returned”.
He added, “He was one of the PDP leaders in Ondo Kingdom; he was Secretary to the State government and Minister of the Federal Republic under the party before he joined LP to realize his governorship ambition.”
