We dont want Mimiko in our party- Labour party

The Labour Party (LP) has rejected plans by the immediate past
Governor of Ondo State, Dr Olusegun Mimiko to return to the party.
Recall that Mimiko on Wednesday resigned from the Peoples
Democratic Party (PDP).
Dr Mike Omotosho, Chairman, Labour Party made this known while
addressing newsmen in Abuja on Wednesday.
Omotosho also said the party had no candidate for the
forthcoming Governorship election in Ekiti state.
According to him, LP was fully aware of plans by Dr Mimiko to
destabilize the current gains being made by workers to reclaim and
reposition the party.
“It is very obvious that the sole purpose of Mimiko’s re-approach
to Labour Party is to use the workers’ party to launder his sagging
political image.
“Nigerians would recall that Mimiko abandoned the Labour Party
for the Peoples 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 it manifests 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 people rooted party and dearth of class
consciousness on his part, ‘’ Omotosho said.
The chairman further said that the leadership would continue to
work to rebuild the Labour Party, especially through the
instrumentality of the Political Commission.
He, however, urged 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.
“In the same vein, the Labour Party wishes to categorically disown
and-condemn recent posturing and proclamations by some
‘politicians in Ekiti State.
“That they are the candidates of the Labour Party in the
forthcoming governorship elections in Ekiti State.
“The Labour Party has no candidate in the July 14, 2018
governorship election in Ekiti State.
