Mimiko picks Labour Party membership card amidst controversy

Olusegun Mimiko
Olusegun Mimiko, former governor of Ondo State has collected the membership card of the Labour Party (LP) in Ondo state.

Mimiko defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Wednesday.
However, his move to return to LP was earlier opposed by Mike Omotosho, national chairman of the party.

Omotosho said the party was not interested in having Mimiko, accusing him of betrayal and leaving the party at a time of distress.
“We urge politicians like the former governor of Ondo state to stay clear of the new Labour Party because we are aware of their gimmicks to lure the Labour Party in the direction of other political parties with the hope of rehabilitating their dwindling political relevance,” he had said.
