In a statement on Sunday, Senator Kashamu explained that Mimiko was advised that Ondo voters would resist the “injustice” of producing a successor from the same senatorial district where he hails.
“It is not that Mr Eyitayo Jegede, SAN, is not a good material. He is urbane, intelligent and smart. He would have probably won had he come from any other senatorial zone than Mimiko’s.
“In a political party, like every other setting, people are bound to have disagreements and protect their interests. Senator Makarfi should not let governors Mimiko and Fayose to mislead him any further. The mess that they have put the party is already more than enough,” he said.
