The National Working Committee, NWC, of the Labour Party, LP, on Wednesday told Governor of Ondo State, Olusegun Mimiko to respect constitution of the party and resign from office within 21 days.
It would be recalled that Mimiko was elected into office as an LP candidate but recently dumped the party for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
The NWC of the Labour Party gave the ultimatum after a meeting in Abuja. The position of the LP was contained in a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Ikpe Etokudo.
The statement reads: “The NWC came to the inevitable conclusion that the constitution of the republic and provision of relevant section of the electoral laws must be respected by Dr. Olusegun Mimiko and his new party – the PDP.
“The case of Dr. Boroffice who was elected as a Senator on the platform of our party but defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC) was cited. The NWC reminded Dr. Mimiko that he was so incensed by Boroffice’s action that he advised the party to approached the court for justice.
“The NWC warned all those concerned to take the path of honour immediately or should expect to defend their deliberate raping of the constitution of the country within next 21 days in court as well as be ready to face the wrath of workers of Ondo State in particular and the nation in general.”
