Governor Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo State on Friday alerted President Muhammadu Buhari of the potential danger of the declaration of Jimoh Ibrahim as the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the forthcoming gubernatorial election in the state, warning that the move by INEC could cause a conflagration in the state.

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, had yesterday removed the name of Eyitayo Jegede of the PDP from the list of the candidates of the political parties that would participate in the November 26 governorship election and replaced it with that of Ibrahim.
Speaking with State House correspondents shortly after meeting behind closed-doors with Buhari at the Presidential Villa, he expressed reservations over the ability of INEC to conduct a credible election in the state.

The Governor said there was no moral justification for what the INEC did, describing Ibrahim’s declaration as injustice and mischief.

He said the President has promised to look into it and that if there is any injustice, assuring that it will be rectified.
