Governor of Ondo Olusegun Mimiko’s visit may be in line with his plan of defecting to the All Progressives Congress (APC), according to Leadership.
Mimiko paid a visit to President Buhari on Friday to discuss the forthcoming governorship election in the state.
Speaking to State House correspondents after the meeting he expressed his reservations on the decision of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Thursday naming Mr. Jimoh Ibrahim as the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). However, he refused to make any comments on the speculation on his planned defection.
He said, “Under INEC guidelines, the time for substitution of candidates has even elapsed.
“This action potentially can cause a breach of peace. In Ondo state in the last seven and half years, we have done everything possible to put good governance on the table. We see this action as potentially dangerous. It can cause conflagration in the state and that is why as the chief security officer of the state, I have come to alert Mr President of the potential danger of this injustice so that we can nip it in the bud.”
