Mimiko Appoints London Fraudster As Commissioner

Street Journal’s findings have shown that one of the nominees whose names were forwarded by Governor Segun Mimiko to the Ondo House of Assembly was allegedly involved in some shady deals in the United Kingdom.
Street Journal gathered that Otunba Nicholas Tofowomo was sacked about seven years ago for alleged fraud at the Homeless Services Unit of the Southwark Council, London.
Nicholas Tofowomo was active as a member of the Alliance for Democracy in Europe and he had been unsuccessful at the polls in Nigeria. He ran for a National Assembly seat in his Ile Oluji Constituency on the Action Congress of Nigeria in the last election before decamping to the Labour Party recently.
Street Journal’s findings have also shown that the Ondo State Governor started working towards the idea of becoming the sole power broker in his party just after he became the state’s chief executive. Sources close to the Governor revealed that he has read and digested Robert Greene’s “48 Laws of Power” and is a religious follower of the rules contained in the book.
The Governor has been at the receiving end of criticism for allegedly embarking on a system of empowerment of crooks and half educated people who thus become fiercely loyal to him. Street Journal’s findings revealed that that is one of the strategies being employed to prop up popularity which many believe is waning in the state. For instance, Street Journal gathered that the Governor is the “champion” of the state as his Deputy, Alhaji Alli Olanusi is half baked academically, his kinsman from Akoko, Yekini Olanipekun, who was the Commissioner for Sports can hardly boast of having a diploma.
Chief Olaiya Oni, the only intellectual who could stand up to the Governor, being the Chairman of the Labour Party, a former Minister and one time Secretary to the State Government was forced to resign not too long ago. Almost all the opposition legislators in the House of Assembly too were compelled to decamp to Labour Party before the last elections.
One other thing the Governor has been accused of in most places that he short changed most of his old lieutenants.
A clear indication that Dr. Mimiko might tread the paths of his predecessor, under whom he served as SSG in terms of nepotism first emerged in 2009 when the principal officers of the Adekunle Ajasin University were sacked for allegedly mismanaging the university’s funds. The exit of Professor Abiodun as the Vice Chancellor paved way for Prof. Femi Mimiko, the Governor’s younger brother.
