Governor Mimiko assures Jonathan of Southwest votes coming 2015 Presidential Election


Governor Mimiko, Ondo State assures President Jonathan that picking a running mate from the South West is not a guarantee for APC. The party, APC has unofficially zoned the vice-presidential slot to the south-west in what is viewed as a tactical move to outdo the PDP in Nigeria’s second largest voting bloc.

Mimiko, who recently defected from the Labour Party (LP) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), is one of the foot soldiers of President Goodluck Jonathan in the south-west. Mimiko was speaking to reporters in Abuja on Tuesday after the launch of Youth Employment in Agriculture Programme (YEAP) and the Find for Agricultural Finance in Nigeria (FAFIN) by Jonathan.

Mimiko said: “I am saying this with all sense of humility, of enlightenment especially in appreciation of issues of politics… in terms of long history of progressive political engagement, you give it to south-west that they know their onions. “Don’t forget that even in 2011 when Mr. President did not have any governor in the south-west, he won in all the south-west states apart from one. “And I tell you, in the south-west, we can sift issues from propaganda. We know the difference between propaganda and the real stuff.” He praised Jonathan’s efforts as president, “I have no doubt in my mind that the south-west will vote for President Jonathan to continue along this path of very useful engagement and productive governance,” he added.
