Bode Obanla, coordinator of the group in statement also added that Mimiko must also defend himself against allegations of fraud concerning the 2016 campaign fund.
"I will implore those who are close to our leader and former governor, Dr Rahaman Olusegun Mimiko to please advise him to give a full and satisfactory account of what transpired with the 2016 PDP governorship election funds.
"He remains a foremost leader in the politics of Ondo state and it is very important to clear all the grey areas concerning the funds before leaving for another party.
"As a leader and for posterity, we pray to meet again, but it is important to be accountable to the people," the group said.
