The former governor of Ondo State, Olusegun Mimiko has officially returned to the Labour Party, the platform he rode on to realise his ambition in 2007.
At the event in Ondo town, Mimiko said he is ready to turn the party to a winning party again. He also said his return is to give a credible alternative to the people.
Many of his aides, who served under him when he was governot, were present at the rally.
It was earlier reported that the National chairman of Labour Party, Mike Omotosho, accused former governor of Ondo State, Olusegun Mimiko, of attempting to destabilize the party, vowing that his attempt to return to the party would be resisted.
The party also said it had no candidates in the forthcoming governorship election in Ekiti state which is scheduled to hold on July 14.
Omotosho made this disclosure on Wednesday during a press conference in Abuja, titled “Once Bitten, Twice Shy – Nigerian Workers Reject Plans by Olusegun Mimiko To Return to Labour Party”.
Mimiko, in his letter of resignation which he addressed to the PDP in the state on Wednesday, said his reasons for resigning from the party were “personal” and “well thought-out.”
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.
