Ondo Governorship: PDP denies pact with Mimiko

The Peoples Democratic Party has denied media reports suggesting the party and the presidency have entered into a deal with Labour Party’s Governor Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo state to help him retain his position in the forthcoming governorship election in the state.

The PDP,  in a statement Thursday by its Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Binta Masi Garba, said such a report is “completely untrue”.

Ms Garba described the report as an attempt to deflate the rising profile and prospects of the PDP and its candidate in the election.

The party urged its supporters to disregard the report, and intensify efforts in the ongoing campaigns to ensure victory at the election.

On Wednesday, a national paper reported that Mr. Mimiko had gone into a pact with the PDP in what was described as a desperate move for political survival.

    This can not be true as Ondo State Labour Party governor,Dr Olusegun Mimiko shall be re-elected strictly on the basis of the physical strucutures he has erected in various sectors of governance like Child and Mother Hospital,Gani Fawehinmi Diagonostic Centres,Mega Schools,Health-Centres,New Markets,New Mottor Parks,N22,000 naira minimum wage,beautification of major cities and towns including the state capital-Akure etc he has completed/on-going-developmental projects,in all parts of Ondo State.
    Whatever the rumour mongers in opposition political aprties may be cooking up would not distract Ondo State voters from judging Mimiko for re-election in october,2012 gubernatorial elelction.PDP is of no reckoning as PDP did not achieved anything under Dr Olusegun Agagu over six years tenure in Ondo State which PDP could fall back on now to seek elelction into the position of Ondo State governor.PDP is a gonner and must stop hallucinating.
