2019: Mimiko Makes U-Turn, Dumps Presidential Ambition For Senate

Olusegun Mimiko, former governor of Ondo state, has dumped his presidential ambition.

The two-term governor of Ondo had emerged presidential candidate of the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP).

But a source told TheCable on Wednesday that Mimiko has pulled out of the presidential race and will now contest the Ondo central senatorial election under ZLP.

Gboye Adegbenro, a former commissioner in his administration, had clinched the senatorial ticket and was listed by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as ZLP’s candidate in the election.

But a source in Mimiko’s camp told TheCable that Adegbenro has agreed to cede the ticket to the former governor.

“Oga (Mimiko) is now the senatorial candidate of ZLP. He is not contesting for president again,” the source said.

“Adegbenro is his boy, he has already stepped down for him.”

The source added that ZLP has reached an agreement with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the presidential election.

“ZLP is having an agreement with PDP in the presidential election, so we are no more fielding any candidate,” the source said.

Eni Akinsola, spokesman to the former governor, could not be reached for comments as calls put to his line were not answered and the text message was also not replied.
