If Omisore Contests 100 Times, He Can't Win – Former Aide
Former deputy governor of Osun State, Senator Iyiola Omisore, has been getting some heavy bashing from one of his former aides.
Diran Odeyemi served as Omisore’s spokesperson and he has said that his former principal is not a credible candidate for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in the Osun governorship elections come 2018.
Prince Odeyemi said if Omisore contests a hundred times to become Osun State Chief Executive, he will never be voted as Governor.
Odeyemi stated this on a radio programme in Osogbo, the state capital.
“Omisore has been contesting to become Governor of Osun since 1995. If the people love him, they should have voted him since then.
“I am a close ally to Omisore. My candid advice from me to him is for him to forget about governorship.
“He is too controversial. Not because of the Bola Ige or EFCC issue, but the reality of it is that he is not acceptable.
“In 2014 when we had the power, federal backing, money and everything to win, he lost to Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola.
“Otunba Iyiola Omisore’s name is too controversial in Osun Politics. His name cannot win any election for the PDP.”
Having dropped the damning verdict, he then added a piece of advice.
“I think what he should just do is to quit the race and become an elder statesman. He should come out and bring forth a candidate that will be sellable.
“If he supports someone from the Osun West Senatorial District, the people of the state will vote PDP.”
Odeyemi also posited that an aspirant for the election from the PDP, Kayode Oduoye is a “kindergarten and schoolboy aspirant”.
