He, however, said the issue of the PDP standard bearer in the governorship election would soon be resolved by the appellate court. The governor expressed the assurance that the candidate of the Ahmed Makarfi’s faction of the party, Mr. Eyitayo Jegede (SAN), would contest the election.
According to him, the PDP as a party in Nigeria and Ondo State in particular, is a major stakeholder in election matter and no one can prevent the party from participating in the forthcoming governorship election in the state.
He said, “I don’t know how they will do it, it is impossible for them to deny us our right. Justice will stand and Jegede will contest this election. Election can’t take place in Ondo State without the PDP.”
"We know those that are behind this. It is beyond the President. Their thinking is that without Jegede, they will win but their plan will fail," he said.
The governor explained that the substitution of name at the Independent National Elect0ral Commission was a conspiracy because the decision of INEC could not find comfort “in justice, in principle, in law and in m0rality.”
Mimiko, who noted that redress had been sought by Jegede, the PDP and major stakeholders, assured the party members that justice would be done because the alleged impunity on the matter would not stand.
