A former governor of Ondo State , Dr. Olusegun Mimiko , has sent his letter of resignation to the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party in the state as he has concluded arrangement to go back to his former party , the Labour Party .
It was gathered that the former governor , who joined the PDP in 2014 and later became the chairman of the PDP Governors ’ Forum, dumped the party following a disagreement between him and some national leaders of the party shortly after he left office as the governor in 2017 .
In a letter addressed to the state leadership of the PDP on Wednesday , Mimiko said his decision to leave the party was personal to him.
The letter read in part, ” I hereby with utmost humility inform you of my decision to resign my membership of the PDP with effect from today , June 13 , 2018, for some well-thought -out personal reasons .
” It was an honour working with the many prominent Nigerians with whom I shared the PDP platform for the entire period I was in there as a member .
“Accept please the assurance of my very high regards .”
It was learnt that Mimiko would be joining the Labour Party he left in 2014 , today in his hometown, Ondo , but without many of his aides who have remained in the PDP .
However , the State Chairman of the PDP , Mr . Clement Faboyede said Mimiko ’s exit from the party would not have any negative impact on the party , saying the party was waxing stronger on a daily basis .
“Mimiko is a human being , he has the right to his opinion , we have tried at all levels to discourage him but he insisted on leaving .
One thing I know is that PDP will not die as he ( Mimiko) leaves . We have survived many turbulent times in the past, so if he goes it cannot affect us negatively ,” Faboyede declared .
