I’m not sponsoring anti-Buhari protest, says Mimiko

Former governor of Ondo State, Dr Olusegun Mimiko,  on Sunday denied involvement with any protest against President Muhammadu Buhari.
Mimiko, in a statement  signed by Eni Akinsola, his media advisor, said he has no hand in any protest as alleged by a group which he said is out to either create mischief or blackmail him.
“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.
One group professing to be pro-Buhari had alleged in a press conference that Mimiko and others are funding the anti-Buhari protests.
