Ondo State Governor says Jonathan will win in 2015

Mimiko, who recently defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), also said that the All Progressives Congress is deceiving the Nigerian populace.

The Governor of Ondo State, Olusegun Mimiko has said that President Goodluck Jonathan would win the 2015 elections.

The governor stated this on Friday, December 26, during a visit to his colleague in Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose.

“We want APC leaders to explain to Nigerians the change they shout all over. Are they saying the country should change from democ­racy to dictatorship? This is necessary because their lead­ers, by their actions, have not shown that they are democratic elements, one can see that they are already afraid in the way they act now,” Mimiko said.

“In the 2011 elections, when President Goodluck Jonathan did not have any governor in the South-West, he won in five of the states. Now that he has more states and subsequent elections in Ondo and Ekiti have shown that the winning streak is continuing, there is not going to be any problem. In states like Oyo, Ogun and Lagos, the tide is chang­ing in favour of PDP. Political jobbers failed to divide us in Lagos and they are jittery already,” the governor added.

He also said that the APC would lose the South-West in 2015:

“I can say it without mincing words that the APC is anxious in the South-West and all their lies will not be able to save them from electoral defeat.”
