Mimiko Defects From PDP, Returns to Labour Party
A former governor of Ondo State, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko, has sent his letter of resignation to the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), officially communicating his disengagement from the party.
Mimiko said his reasons for resigning from the party were “personal” and “well thought-out.”
“I hereby with utmost humility inform you of my decision to resign my membership of the PDP with effect from today, June 13, 2018 for some well thought-out personal reasons,” the former two term governor, said.
“It was an honour working with the many prominent Nigerians with whom I shared the PDP platform for the entire period I was in there as a member. Accept please the assurance of my very high regards.”
Although Mimiko did not state his next move, SIGNAL can report that he would officially be declaring for the Labour Party (LP) on Thursday in Ondo, his hometown.
The medical doctor-turned politician came into office in 2009 on the platform of the LP and was re-elected in 2012 but moved the entire structure of the party to the PDP on the exigencies of the 2015 presidential election.
The PDP was yet to officially react to his defection at the time of filing this report.
