The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Labour party on Wednesday rejected plans by former Governor of Ondo state Olusegun Mimiko to return to the employees’ party.
Chairman of the party Mike Omotosho advised journalists that the NLC was totally conscious of plans Mimiko to allegedly destabilise the present good points being made by the party.
“It is very obvious that the sole purpose of Mimiko’s re-approach to Labour Party is to use the workers’ party to launder his sagging political image,” he mentioned.
“Nigerians would recall that Mimiko deserted the Labour Party for the Peoples Democratic Party a few days to Labour Party’s October 2015 National Convention.
“Such a treachery and betrayal of a party that gave the previous Governor succour within the darkest hour of his political profession.
“Especially, because it manifests in his two time period victory on the ticket of Labour Party is to say the least, low-cost and callous.
“It also revealed paucity of knowledge of the philosophy of the Labour Party as a people rooted party and dearth of class consciousness on his part.”
