The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chairman in Ondo State, Mr. Ebenezer Alabi has alleged that loyalists to Governor Olusegun Mimiko,have embarked on illegal membership registration exercise across the 203 wards in the state.

Mr. Alabi, in a Press Statement issued to journalists in Akure, the state capital, also alleged that some supporters of the governor have been parading themselves as Chairmen and Secretaries of the PDP across wards of the state and carrying out ?illegal recruitment? of new members.

He disclosed that the illegal registration and distribution of party?s cards were fake adding that such processes doesn?t emanate from its National Secretariat neither the State office along Oyemekun road, Akure.

The State Chairman alleged that the governor and his cohorts have planned to thwart the progress of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state.

Alabi stressed that the recent defection of Governor Mimiko to the PDP
now shows that he is pursuing a self-agenda by settling up a parallel secretariat at Alagbaka area of the state capital.

?We are aware that these elements with the support of Governor Olusegun Mimiko who joined the party lately are bent on constituting themselves as clogs in the wheel of progress of the PDP in Ondo State.

“The level of impunity the Governor had exhibited since he joined the party is unfathomable, ungentlemanly and undignifying of the exhorted position he occupies.

“However, Mimiko and his supporters have chosen to dare the law by illegally setting up a Parallel secretariat in the state capital, located at Bishop Fagun Road Alagbaka Akure.

“In furtherance of this contempt, they have embarked on this illegal registration. The leadership of the party in Ondo State is coming to term with the bare fact that Mimiko is joining the party to pursue a self-agenda and personal vendetta?, he said.

While urging officers of the State Security Service and Nigeria Police Force to pay attention to the level of impunity being displayed by the governor, the party said it would resist any form of imposition.

?We however directed the attention of the State Security Services and Nigeria Police to what PDP called “illegality” that is being perpetrated with impunity.

?We urged all party members to take note of the development and distant themselves from the illegal registration and report any act that could undermine the constituted party authority to appropriate security agencies.

?Our party is united than ever before to deliver all available votes to Dr. Goodluck Ebelle Jonathan come 2015. We shall resist any form of imposition of candidate and dissolution of our state executive”, he added.
