Labour Party Reportedly Rejects Mimiko After He Dumped PDP To Join …
The Labour Party (LP) has rejected plans by the immediate past Governor of Ondo State, Dr Olusegun Mimiko to return to the party after he defected from PDP on Wednesday.
Dr Mike Omotosho, Chairman, Labour Party made this known while addressing newsmen in Abuja on Wednesday. Omotosho also said the party had no candidate for the forthcoming Governorship election in Ekiti state. According to him, LP was fully aware of plans by Dr Mimiko to destabilize the current gains being made by workers to reclaim and reposition the party.
He said, “It is very obvious that the sole purpose of Mimiko’s re-approach to Labour Party is to use the workers’ party to launder his sagging political image. Nigerians would recall that Mimiko abandoned the Labour Party for the Peoples Democratic Party a few days to Labour Party’s October 2015 National Convention.
Such a treachery and betrayal of a party that gave the former Governor succour in the darkest hour of his political career, especially, as it manifests in his two term victory on the ticket of Labour Party is to say the least, cheap and callous. It also revealed paucity of knowledge of the philosophy of the Labour Party as a people rooted party and dearth of class consciousness on his part.
