Olusegun MimikoTwo Special Assistants to Governor Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo State on Wednesday resigned their appointments and defected to the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Those who resigned are Aderonke Morolayo (Special Assistant on Political Matters) and Victor Ojo (Special Assistant on Mobilization).

In her letter of resignation dated November 2, 2016 and addressed to the governor, Mrs. Morolayo said, “this is to formally inform Your Excellency of my resignation from the government of Ondo State due to circumstances beyond my control.

“Your Excellency, let me also use this medium to thank and appreciate you for counting me worthy to serve the good people of Ondo State in this capacity”.

She, however, informed Mr. Mimiko that his decision to have his successor from the Central Senatorial District, where he hailed from, would cost the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the November 26 governorship poll.

Mrs. Morolayo and Mr. Ojo on Wednesday formally declared their membership of the APC.

A statement by the APC’s Publicity Secretary in the state, Abayomi Adesanya, said the two politicians were received into the party by the deputy governorship candidate in the forthcoming election, Agboola Ajayi.

The statement said that the two new members had pledged to work for the success of APC in the election.

It stated that Mr. Ajayi assured the defectors of equal opportunities and urged them to work assiduously for the party’s victory and progress in the state.
