Clement Faboyede, the chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Ondo State, on Monday, May 14, 2018, begged the party’s leader and former governor, Olusegun Mimiko, to rescind his decision to dump the party.
Faboyede noted that the leadership role of the former governor in building the party and the state remained unequal in the annal of the state history.
He said ” Mimiko remained our party leader, time changes, interaction might change too, but he will remain our leader and we have a great respect for him.
We, at the Ondo PDP, are appealing and calling on former governor Olusegun Mimiko, to stay in the party and continue to provide leadership for the party in the state, so that our people can take various positions in the next election.
He said he is still consulting and has not informed us that he has left the party but I am sure that at the end of his consultations, he will not leave this party. Most of us believe he is pulling our legs and will soon return to the party.
He explained that the PDP remained the only platform that offers hope to the common man and to wrestle lower from the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, and President Muhammad Buhari in 2019.
Earlier, Bode Obanla, the Coordinator of the PSG, disclosed that the group had moved around the 18 local government areas of the state to reconcile all aggrieved members and also to reposition the party to win the future election in the state.
Obanla noted that the reconciliatory efforts had been yielding positive results and appealed to the State Executives of the party to rescind its decision on the suspension of Dennis Alonge, the Deputy National youth leader of the party, who was suspended over alleged anti-party activities.
