He argued that Olanusi had the right to defect to any party of his choice since Mimiko, who contested the seat on the platform of Labour Party alongside Olanusi, had also defected to the Peoples Democratic Party.
Governor Mimiko denied the allegation, saying Borofice’s alarm had no substance and that Olanusi had nothing to fear if he was convinced that he had not committed impeachable offences.
