The Ali Modu Sheriff faction of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has blamed Governor Olusegun Mimiko for the failure of the party to grab the Governorship seat in the just concluded election.

Sheriff’s faction also said Mimiko’s acts of impunity gave room for the poor performance of the PDP in the Ondo governorship election.

According to Punch, the Vice-Chairman of Sheriff’s side, Dr. Cairo Ojougboh blamed some PDP Governors of imposing their candidates on the people.

Ojougboh said “In choosing a candidate to succeed him, Mimiko did not allow the PDP members to buy forms. He mainly anointed Eyitayo Jegede (SAN) who was returned unopposed.

“Party members cried to high heavens that Jegede is from the central zone where Mimiko hails from. Their cries fell on deaf ears.”

Senator Buruji Kashamu also blamed Governor Mimiko for the woes of the party in the November 26, 2016 election.
