Politically Dead Mimiko Needs Agboola’s Money – Akeredolu




Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State has revealed why his predecessor, Olusegun Mimiko is backing the ambition of Deputy Governor, Ajayi Agboola.

Recall that Agboola had left the All Progressives Congress (APC) after a falling out with his boss Akeredolu.

The deputy governor joined the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) but he was not given the party guber ticket which led to him dumping the party and pitching his tent with the Mimiko’s Zenith Labour Party (ZLP).

Speaking on Arise TV, Akeredolu described Mimiko and Agboola as betrayers.

According to the Ondo governor, he is not bothered by the alignment between Mimiko and Agboola.

He said: “Does it affect me, does it make me nervous? The answer is no. I am confident of my victory. Who are these people? They were never my allies.

“I ran against him (Mimiko) in 2012. I ran against Jegede in 2016 with Mimiko supporting him. I have treated him fairly. Mimiko has his own trait, if Agboola with all he did finds solace in Mimiko, it is because they have the same trait, they are people prone to betrayer.

“Mimiko is not a political force anywhere, he left governor’s office, and tried the senate, he did not win. He did not even win his local government, he is a spent force.

“He is dead politically, he is probably looking for someone to resurrect him, and maybe Agboola has some money to spend on him. I know Agboola has some money to waste. Mimiko is a nobody anymore. You guys are the ones keeping them alive.”
