“Good Governance Is What Is Important To Me” – Omisore Gives Conditions To Support PDP At Osun Rerun
Senator Iyiola Omisore, one of the contestants at the Osun governorship election, has given the condition to support the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Ademola Adeleke, in the Osun rerun on Thursday.
Following the declaration of the election inconclusive by INEC, who gave reasons that the difference between the votes scored by the two leading parties, the PDP and the All Progressives Congress, was lower than the number of votes cancelled.
Omisore has since become a bride to the two parties because most of the polling units fall within his stronghold. Omisore’s father, Oba David Omisore, is the ruler of the Garage Olode, a town in Ife -South, where elections in two units were cancelled.
Speaking during the visit of a PDP presidential aspirant, Senator Bukola Saraki, to his home in Ile-Ife on Monday, Omisore, who also dumped the PDP after a disagreement over the party’s primary, said as a stakeholder in the state, he was always after a people-centred government.
“I have given my programmes to both the APC and the PDP. My programme is like this; payment of salaries and pensions. Good governance is what is important to me.
“Anyone between the two that will do that will get my support. I am passionate about Osun State and my interest is the welfare of the people of this state. I have told those sent to me. At the appropriate time, we will tell you where we are going.”
