A group within the Labour Party, ‘The Concerned LP Group’ has accused former governor of Ondo State, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko of an alleged plot to destabilize the party.
Speaking at the end of a meeting held Monday, the chairman of the group, Alhaji Waheed Enilolobo described, “Mimiko as a very selfish and self -seeking individual that is readily prepared to do anything for his personal interest.”
He added that, “We are worried with the recent moves of Dr. Mimiko to destabilize our party. What is ordinarily expected of him is to help reconcile Dr. Mike Omotosho and Abdulkadir Abdulsalam.
“Unfortunately, he has not done anything of such but merely interested in bulldozing his way into our party by all means”.
The Group Chairman wondered what Mimiko stand to benefit from his second coming to the Labour Party.
Enilolobo described Mimiko as someone who once used the platform of the Labour party to get to power and later jumped ship when he found it most convenient.
“This is a man that used our party to get to power in Ondo state only to dump the party for the PDP in his self- seeking quest.
“We don’t even have any problem with his second coming, except that his determination to destabilize our party in his quest to hijack the party structure is most worrisome to say the least” said Eniololobo.
Secretary of the group, Mallam Hassan Mohammed took a swipe at Mimiko by describing him as a politician whose popularity and acceptance had waned dramatically in the PDP and only seeking a safe haven in the Labour Party.
He further said that majority of Mimiko’s appointees and aides when he was governor did not agree to decamp with him because of deceit and slipperiness he is well known for.
He said, “We have it on good authority that only a scanty number of Mimiko’s aides and appointees have agreed to follow him to the Labour Party because of his known deceitful and slippery nature.
“There should be a limit to the excesses of human beings in a desperate bid for political relevance. There is also a limit to the level to which a group of people can take people for a ride.”
