The group made this known in a statement issued and signed by its coordinator, Bode Obanla, according to Sahara Reporters in Akure on Wednesday.
The PSG claims to have information that the former governor was planning to leave the PDP, but must, however, first account for the election funds, adding that the former governor must also defend himself against fraud allegations leveled against him concerning the governorship campaign fund.
Obanla said, “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 reiterated that the PDP requires a deeper reconciliation across the 18 local government areas of the state to convince wary members of the party not to leave.
NIGERIA NEWS gathered that the group has also embarked on reconciliation efforts, which, according to him, is already yielding positive results ahead of the 2019 general election.
