According to the Daily Post Olusegun Mimiko and his Deputy have been at loggerheads ever since, resulting to media reports that the governor was making some moves to impeach him.

PM News meanwhile reports that a source close to the Ondo State Government House said that Olanusi who is yet to formally declare his switch has not stated his reasons for defection.

As the APC welcome Alhaji Ali, the PDP will still be enjoying the defection of an opposition deputy governor, Engr. Tele Ikuru of Rivers state who defected from the APC to be PDP last week.
