The Ondo State Governor, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko, has relocated to Abuja on a part-time basis in order to ensure justice for Mr. Eyitayo Jegede, who is eyeing the Alagbakala Government House. The governor stated this in Akure on Wednesday at a programme in honour of the Founder, Oodua Peoples Congress, Dr. Frederick Fasehun.
The programme was organised by a group of youths known as Integrity Icons. Mimiko, who was the chairman on the occasion, expressed the hope that Jegede would get justice.
