COURT CASE AGAINST MIMIKO: ONDO PDP DISOWNS OBANLA

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Ondo State  Chapter says it has  received the purported court action instituted against former Governor Olusegun Mimiko by a chieftain of the party,  Bode Obanla as a rude shock.

The party said Mr. Mimiko, a two term Governor of Ondo State is not only a senior citizen in Ondo State but Nigeria at large.

The party said  his return to the PDP was orchestrated by four Governors elected on the platform of our great party PDP under the leadership of Alhaji Aminu Tambuwal, Governor of Sokoto State and Chairman, PDP Governors’ Forum.

The State Working Committee noted that  the action of Bode Obanla is a great embarrassment to the party and necessary actions will be taken in due course.

The Party in a statement issued by its Publicity Secretary, Kennedy Ikantu Peretei, said Mr  Obanla’s action is a mere distraction that should be treated as such.
