Why Mimiko, Ajayi should collapse ZLP structure for PDP
—- Ajayi’s desperacy ‘ll lead to nowhere
A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP), Mr. Segun Sowunmi has stressed the need for the PDP and Zenith Labour Party to work together in the coming election.
He said the PDP is not foreclosing talks with former Ondo Governor Olusegun Mimiko for next week’s governorship election.
Despite repeated denial by the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP) in Ondo that there was no alliance talks with the PDP, Sowumi believes the two parties can dislodge the incumbent if they work together
Sowunmi, who was a former spokesman of the Atiku Campaign Organisation, spoke in Akure, the Ondo state capital.
He said PDP leaders were still mounting pressure on Mimiko to collapse the ZLP structure into the PDP with a view to defeating Governor Rotimi Akeredolu at the polls.
The PDP chieftain noted Mimiko remained a key actor to ensuring the collapse of the ZLP structures into PDP and support Eyitayo Jegede.
He assured that Jegede would not depart from the vision that Mimiko has been driving.
Sowunmi warned that Ajayi candidature would be dangerous he (Ajayi) is desperate about ruling the state.
“Agboola could not be trusted, even when they gave him the second seat, as governor in waiting for Akeredolu , he makes life difficult for him and couldn’t have the decency and dignity of resigning his appointment when he chose to jump ship but carry their mandate up and down in the market, negotiating for what is not lost
“When we gave him a big reception in a big party like PDP, that did not satisfy him. Can every man insists that everytime he goes out for election he must win?
