Below are pictures showing the moment Olusegun Mimiko returned to Labour Party, the platform which enabled him rule Ondo state for 8 years.
However, his return has been met with criticism from the National Chairman of Labour Party (LP), Dr. Mike Omotosho.
Speaking in Abuja yesterday, Omotosho said: “Nigerians would recall that Dr. Mimiko abandoned the Labour Party for the People’s Democratic Party a few days to Labour Party’s October 2015 National Convention. Such a treachery and betrayal of a party that gave the former governor succour in the darkest hour of his political career especially as manifest in his two term victory on the ticket of Labour Party is to say the least, cheap and callous. It also revealed paucity of knowledge of the philosophy of the Labour Party as a peoples’ rooted party and dearth of class consciousness on his part.”
He stated that while the leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) continues to work to rebuild the party especially through the instrumentality of its political commission, saying, “we urge all workers and indeed genuine lovers of popular democracy to ignore the political theatrics of people like the former Governor of Ondo State. He has shown Nigerian workers that he cannot be trusted. The Labour Party is no longer a transit bus to strange political destinations particularly under the subterfuge of people like him.”
