Olusegun Mimiko, the immediate past governor of Ondo State, has on Wednesday, June 13, 2018, sent his letter of resignation to the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the state as he has concluded arrangement to go back to his former party, the Labour Party.
It was gathered that the former governor, who joined the PDP in 2014 and later became the chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum, dumped the party following a disagreement between him and some national leaders of the party shortly after he left office as the governor in 2017.
In a letter addressed to the state leadership of the PDP on Wednesday, June 13, 2018, Mimiko said his decision to leave the party was personal to him.
The letter read in part, ” I hereby with utmost humility inform you of my decision to resign my membership of the PDP with effect from Wednesday, June 13, 2018, for some well-thought-out personal reasons.
”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.”
It was learnt that Mimiko would be joining the Labour Party he left in 2014, today in his hometown, Ondo, but without many of his aides who have remained in the PDP.
