Gov. Olusegun Mimiko Dumps LP for PDP


The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has received another political stalwart into its midst as Governor Olusegun Mimiko of Ekiti has decamped from the Labour Party (LP) to the PDP.

The move was reportedly concluded on Friday, August 22, 2014 and has been confirmed by chieftains of both parties.

The Commissioner of Information in the state, Kayode Akinmade said that as a result of “serious pressure from the leadership of the PDP before and after the Osun governorship election, the governor is still consulting with stakeholders across the country on this.”
“For now, the governor is still in Labour Party even if he will eventually move he cannot take a unilateral decision on this matter.’’

Mimiko’s defection comes barely a week after the former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Nuhu Ribadu also joined the PDP after leaving the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Femi-Fani Kayode also had a congratulatory message for his friend Governor Olusegun Mimiko.
