The former Governor of Ondo State Olusegun Mimiko, has just resigned his membership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
In a brief message to the office of the PDP in Akure, Mimiko said the decision to leave the umbrella party was based on “some well-thought-out personal reasons”.
The former Governor praised some of the leaders of the PDP whom he worked with while in the party as a member.
“I hereby, with utmost humility, inform you of my decision to resign my membership of the PDP with effect from today, June 13, 2018 for some well-thought-out personal reasons,” he said.
“It was an honour working the many prominent Nigerians with whom I shared the PDP platform for the entire period I was in there as a member.
“Accept, please, the assurance of my very high regards.”
Mimiko had left LP on October 2, 2014, for the PDP to support the re-election bid of former President Goodluck Jonathan.
Governor Mimiko, who ruled Ondo between February 2009 and 2017, will rejoin the LP with some key members of his then cabinet.
