Olusegun Mimiko, a former Governor of Ondo state, has quit the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
“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,” Mimiko said in a letter of resignation to the leadership of the party.
According to Mimiko, “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.”
Clement Faboyede, the state Chairman of the PDP, has said that Mimiko’s exit from the PDP would not affect the party negatively.
“Mimiko is a human being, he has the right to his opinion, we have tried at all levels to discourage him but he insisted on leaving. One thing I know is that PDP will not die as he (Mimiko) leaves. We have survived many turbulent times in the past, so if he goes it cannot affect us negatively,” The PUNCH quoted Faboyede as saying.
Reports suggest Mimiko has concluded plans to return to his former party, the Labour Party.
