Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state has kicked against the selection/election of Governor Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo state as the new Chairman of PDP governors forum. fayose petitioned the national leadership of the party to intervene before the matter degenerates into a full blown crisis. The party’s National Working Committee (NWC) will be meeting the party’s governors today to iron out the matter.
The aggrieved governors were said to have protested that the choice of Mimiko did not follow due process on grounds that Mimiko defected to the PDP only last year.
Mimiko emerged chairman of the Forum last week at the governors’ meeting in Abuja, where only six of the party’s 13 governors and two deputies were present.
