Mimiko made this call at a press conference held today in Akure, the state capital. He accused INEC of plotting to subvert the will of the people if it goes ahead with the poll.
He said the PDP's candidate has not been given the opportunity to submit names of party agents and has not campaigned as other party's candidate has. He warned the electoral body not to set the state on fire.
"The set of people INEC sent to Ondo is the same set it sent to Edo where they rigged the election and want to do the same thing here, we will not accept that," Mimiko said.
When asked if his party's candidate, Eyitayo Jegede would continue with the poll, Mr Mimiko said it will participate in the poll but reiterated that the poll must be postponed.
Meanwhile, the Alliance for Democracy (AD) has warned INEC and security agencies against manipulating the results of the election in favour of any party, especially the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Director General of Olusola Oke campaign organization Bola Ilori said any attempt to manipulate the result of the election will be resisted by the good people of Ondo State, adding that the people of the state should be allowed to choose who rules them.
