According to reports, the Ondo State Government factional candidate of the Peoples Democratic Pary, PDP, Jimoh Ibrahim has threatened to sue the outgoing governor, Olusegun Mimiko if given the mandate to run the state.
Addressing reporters in Akure, the state capital, the businessman said he doesn’t need the support of Mimiko, a fellow party member to emerge as governor of the state.
He also said that he would neither participate in any reconciliation move with the governor nor beg him to emerge victorious at the polls, stressing that his would only talk to electorates and go to the polls.
According to Ibrahim, “I am not going to prostrate or beg anybody before I become the governor. I will only beg the electorate.
“So, take it from me: I’m not going to have any type of meeting with anybody. That is recalcitrant to this ambition. It is not a do or die affair.”
