Stakeholders of the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP) in Ondo State have resolved to join the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The resolution to join the PDP was reached at a meeting at the Ondo town residence of the national leader of the ZLP Dr. Olusegun Mimiko.

This is the third time Mimiko will defect to the PDP.

Other ZLP leaders at the meeting were former Ondo Deputy Governor Agboola Ajayi; Hon Gboye Adegbenro; former Ondo Speaker Jumoke Akindele; Chairman of Ondo ZLP, Hon Joseph Akinlaja; ex-governorship aspirant Banji Okunomo as well as former senior aides to Mimiko.

The former Governor, who held a closed-door meeting with four Governors of the PDP led by Oyo’s Seyi Makinde, said the ZLP was being invited to join the PDP to rescue the country from the brink of insecurity.

He explained that the meeting was to intimate members with outcomes of series of interactions with PDP leaders on the invitation extended to him.

The former Ondo Governor said leaders of the PDP have shown demonstrable commitment to fully integrate all willing defectors from the ZLP and accord them full membership rights in what promises to be a win for PDP members and Nigerians alike.

After deliberations, Hon Akinlaja called for a motion requesting for members of the ZLP in Ondo State to join the PDP.

The motion was affirmed by a yes vote by all present.
