Akure - Gov Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo Sate has raised fears over the possible survival of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), reports New Telegraph.
Mimiko, who is also the Chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum, said the party may go into extinction if leaders of the party do mot manage the present crisis bedeviling the party very well.
Mimiko hinged his fears on indiscipline among the rank and file of the party members which has given rise to several litigations in different courts on the leadership crisis in the party.

Mimiko made the remark in Akure, the Ondo state capital, at the opening of the inaugural meeting of the party’s executive council in the South West.
The meeting according to Thisday was convened by the Chairman of the PDP in the South-West, Dr Eddy Olafeso and was attended by zonal officers and chairmen from states of the region.
Mimiko noted that the high level of indiscipline in the party has resulted in a series of leadership crises at the national level, which also have overbearing effects in some states.
Apparently referring to the factional Chiarman of the party Ali Modu Sheriff , Mimiko wondered how somebody would think of running a political party based on court judgments when all organs of the party have not given him the nod.
