Shock As Mimiko Decides Not To Contest For President Again

The Zenith Labour Party Presidential candidate Olusegun Mimiko Thursday backed out of the
presidential race to contest Ondo central senatorial seat in 2019.
In a statement received by The Guardian, John Paul Akinduro, Mimiko’s spokesman said he
announced his withdrawal from the race while meeting with the party faithful and some national
leaders of the party in Ondo.

“I took the decision in the ultimate interest of our party, the Zenith Labour Party,” said Mimiko.
He, however, declared he would now be running for Ondo Central Senatorial district in next
year’s election.

The statement also revealed that the party’s candidate for Ondo Central Senatorial district, Engr.
Gboye Adegbenro, has also stepped down for Mimiko.
Adegbenro, a former commissioner for Works under the Mimiko’s administration, said in a
separate statement on Thursday that he is stepping down for Mimiko “in the interest of the
Zenith Labour Party and our dear state.”

He added that “I am convinced that the candidacy of our leader, the former governor of Ondo
State, Dr Olusegun Mimiko, will better serve the interest of the district now and the overall goal
of the south-west.”

Mimiko did not disclose if his party would be supporting any of the major presidential
candidates in the 2019 presidential race.

Mimiko governed Ondo State between 2009 and 2016 on the platform of the Labour Party and
the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP), respectively.
After returning to Labour party in June, he dumped the party in September to join the Zenith
Labour Party (ZLP) where he unanimously emerged as ZLP presidential candidate.

@Bouqui: Hahahahahaha, You are really funny. Well, in the near future, there could be Polaris Labour Party. That being said, the last time we had a chat, I thought you said you are a supporter of MIMIKO. Is it because he left PDP and Labour part to join Zenith Party, that you are no longer his supporter? I am aware you are from Ondo State.

@Jeremiah: He seems confuse but he has a destination he wants to reach.

@Olajide: Because humans are insatiable

This is the problem our so-called leaders create, in the end, they become mere dealers. They are so confused but they make their followers even more confused
