A report has emerged that Ondo State Governor, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko is planning to return to the Labour Party to achieve his aim of installing his successor.

Mimiko was elected governor of the state under the platform of Labour Party in 2007 and 2012, but defected to PDP in October 2014.

A member of the Ahmed Makarfi-led faction of the PDP, Mimiko’s succession plan to install Eyitayo Jegede has come under threat following the emergence of Jimoh Ibrahim as the PDP candidate from the Senator Alli Modu Sheriff faction, which may lead to PDP not having any candidate in the forthcoming governorship.

Rumour is now rife that Gov. Mimiko planned to use the Labour Party, as a ‘Plan B’ to realise his succession plan in case the crisis rocking the state branch of PDP is not resolved before the election.

Labour Party has also expressed willingness to welcome Dr. Mimiko back to its fold.

“The governor of Ondo State, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko, and his followers are free to come back to Labour Party. Mimiko is a person to be reckoned with politically and he is free today if he decides to come back to Labour Party. Nobody will stop him because he has contributed his quota to the party and he has worked in Ondo State as governor under the Labour Party.

“Whether we like it or not, when we write the history of Ondo State and the performance of Gov. Mimiko, the Labour Party will be mentioned,” Deputy National Chairman of Labour Party, Mrs. Ladi Iliya, told The Guardian.
