APC faults Mimiko’s visit to Buhari

31 October 2016, 12:05

Akure - The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State has picked holes in the visit of the governor, Dr Olusegun Mimiko to President Muhamadu Buhari at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa after the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, confirmed Jimoh Ibrahim as the party’s governorship candidate.

In a statement by the party’s State Publicity Secretary, Abayomi Adesanya, the party said “the mission of Governor Mimiko to Mr. President, on the crisis rocking the Ondo PDP over the party’s governorship candidature, “Has Governor Mimiko gone to complain to President Buhari as the leader of PDP?

Now, if he has gone to complain to the President what does he(Mimiko) want the President to do against the (INEC) and the Courts that ordered INEC to recognize Barrister Jimoh Ibrahim as the authentic PDP governorship candidate in the 2016 November 26th election?

“Is Governor Mimiko portraying that the President is the one directing and controlling INEC and Courts by going to report to him?

“When has the President become the appellate Court to the High Court, that he (Mimiko) has to report to him, on a matter already ruled-on and decided by court of competent jurisdiction?.

“If, Governor Mimiko, as the Chief Security Officer of the State, has gone to the President on security matters, is he (Mimiko) saying the entire Ondo State Police Command, Department of State Security (DSS), National Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC) and the Military Command in the State cannot curtail the crisis?

“Is it not shameful, Mr. Governor that, you being the leader of PDP in Ondo State, and the Chairman PDP Governors’ Forum in Nigeria, cannot abate little misunderstanding in the State chapter of his party? We advice you take a queue and learn from Ondo APC in party management.
