Mimiko’s deputy faces hard times for defection
Deputy governor of Ondo State, Alhaji Ali Olanusi, is surely in for tough times, going by the alarm that was raised on Tuesday by the chairman, Senate Committee on Science and Technology, Senator Robert Boroffice
Borofice in a statement in Abuja alleged, that the state’s governor, Olusegun Mimiko had set in motion, plans to have Olanusi impeached for defecting to the APC.
The senator, who is an APC member from the Ondo North Senatorial District, in a statement in Abuja, alleged that the governor was already harassing his deputy with thugs, a development, he added, that was putting his life in danger.
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 PDP.
Boroffice said, “As the Asiwaju of Akokoland, our people have mandated me to warn the Ondo State governor against making attempt to frustrate an industrious and highly prominent Akoko man out of his government simply because he defected to another party.
it would be recalled, that Olanusi had also recently raised an alarm that the state governor was after his life for having defected from the PDP.
