Labour Party Reacts To Reports, Says Mimiko Is Welcomed.

My attention was rightly drawn to a report on Thisday live where a faceless group spoke on the return of Dr Olusegun Mimiko to Labour Party.

This personal reply is requisite because the said group, while supposedly condemning the return of the former governor, appeared to be speaking in our support.

Let me state unequivocally that Dr Olusegun Mimiko is free to return to this Party he helped nurtured. I have nothing against his return and I state without any reservation that his coming will be a good addition to this party at this time. He is a brother and a well experienced politician.

Though rules of engagement have since changed with our new leadership, we are resolute about building a well structured party where the generality of the people, not few individuals, have the way.
We made a solemn promise to return this party to the masses who truly own it and that we shall make happen. Irrespective of who knocks on our door, our ideologies cannot be compromised, Our resolve for best practices, internal democracy and rule of law is sacrosanct.

While appealing to individuals and aggrieved members to eschew acrimony and embrace peace across board, I assure all, again, that the mandate freely given to me at the October 3rd Special National Convention shall be upheld to the success of the party. You have given us the mandate, we shall give you the victory.

To all loyal party members across the country, thank you for standing firm, you are all the reason this great party has not been confined to the dustbin of history in spite of past dealings that only promote the interests of very few minority.
