A competent source from Akure just inform me that the Ondo State Executives of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is set to be dissolved to accommodate Governor Olusegun Mimiko led Labour Party LP.
The source said Mimiko,a close associate of President Goodluck Jonathan would return to the PDP in a grand style very soon.
Jonathan had during a media chat after Mimiko re-election said he sees Mimiko has a member of his party. President Jonathan supported his re-election bid in 2012, by deploying 'Federal Power' to him which save him from the jugular of 'Lagos' opposition.
Early this week PDP leaders and members paid a congratulatory visit to Mimiko, at his Office, in Akure, to congratulate him on his victory at the election petitions tribunal and declare their support for his government. Mimiko is the only elected Governor on the platform of LP,Politicians in the state describe him as an 'Abuja Member' of PDP. Mimiko also have been very passionate about defending every actions of President Jonathan in recent time. His Media aide Eni Akinsola did not respond to calls to confirm the story
