Abuja - The National Working Committee of the Labour Party (LP) has given Governor of Ondo State, Olusegun Mimiko, a 21-day ultimatum to resign from office.
According to a statement issued by the party National Publicity Secretary, Ikpe Etokudo, the leadership of the party took the decision after a meeting in Abuja.
“The National Working Committee came to the inevitable conclusion that the constitution of the republic and provision of relevant section of the electoral laws must be respected by Dr Olusegun Mimiko and his new party.”

The party cited the case of Dr Ajayi Boroffice, who was elected as a Senator on the platform of the party but defected to the other opposition All Progressives Congress (APC).
“The National Working Committee (NWC) warned all those concerned to take the path of honour immediately or should expect to defend their deliberate raping of the constitution of the country within next 21 days in court as well as be ready to face the wrath of workers of Ondo State in particular and the nation in general.”
Mimiko was elected into office as Labour Party candidate but recently dumped the party for the ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
