Former governor of Ondo state, Dr Olusegun Mimiko on Sunday August 13, denied involvement with any protest against President Muhammadu Buhari.

NAIJ.com gathered that Mimiko said: “We are aware of an attempt to blackmail Dr Olusegun Mimiko by linking him to an anti-Buhari protest.

“The blackmailers are out to bandy figures running into hundreds of millions as funds released for the phantom support,” the statement reads.

The statement said, “Mimiko is not interested in causes he cannot stand up to be seen as supporting.”

While saying he is of the “firm conviction that the President, by transmitting power to the Vice President, has fulfilled the proper and constitutional requirement,” Mimiko, in the statement, reiterated that he has nothing to do with any anti-Buhari protest.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had previously reported that some bishops asked President Muhammadu Buhari to resign from office because of his ill health.
