The Ondo State Governor, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko, may dump his party, Labour Party for the Peoples Democratic Party.
A source in the Presidency on Friday confirmed that negotiation was in advanced stage with the governor to ensure a seamless defection to the ruling party before the 2015 elections.
Mimiko, who is the only governor elected on the platform of the Labour Party, is serving his second term in office.
Mimiko is a known political ally of the PDP and a staunch supporter of President Goodluck Jonathan. He was a member of the PDP before he defected to the LP in 2006 to contest for the governorship election in Ondo State.
His planned defection was said to be part of the efforts by the ruling party to capture Ondo State in 2015.
