A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo State, Hon Bode Obanla, has said that he would institute legal action against a former governor of the State, Dr Olusegun Mimiko if he joins the party as being rumoured.

According to Obanla, in the last few days, the only talking point of Ondo State politics has been the rumoured return of Dr Olusegun Mimiko, a former Governor of Ondo State from the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP) to the PDP.

Starnews Nigeria reports that there is a rumour making the round that Mimiko, Agboola Ajayi and scores of political titans of the ZLP have perfected plans to dump the party for the PDP.

He vowed to invoke chapter 2, section 8 and subsection 17 of the PDP constitution against the former governor.

The sections expressly state that “a person who has earlier decamped from the Party, but later decides to return to the Party shall lose the seniority and privileges conferred on him by his previous status”.

He said: “I am happy there are provisions in our constitution that allow me to take Mimiko to court now that he is planning to rejoin the PDP. I have already instructed my lawyer to get prepared. The law is there to check our activities at the party. No one is above the law.”

“It would have been a thing of joy for a person of Mimiko’s experience and pedigree to join the PDP, but I would take necessary legal actions against him to protect our great party from harm if he officially declare for the PDP”, Obanla said in a statement made available to Starnews Nigeria on Tuesday.

But in his reaction, the Publicity Secretary of PDP, Mr Kennedy Peretei said Mimiko, Ajayi and others are welcome to the PDP. He described the defection as a welcome development.
