Ado Ekiti - There appears to be a fresh crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP ) as Gov. Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has rejected the emergence of Gov. Olesegun Mimiko of Ondo State as the Chairman of the party's Governors' Forum, reports The Nation.
He said the election of Mimiko on Tuesday did not follow due process on grounds that Mimiko defected to the PDP only a year ago.

Fayose has allegedly rallied some other governors in the party to make a stand against Mimiko’s emergence.
