Osun Governorship: SDP Aspirant Tackles Omisore Over Party's Ticket
The last may not have been heard about the defection of a former Deputy Governor of Osun State, Senator Iyiola Omisore, from the Peoples Democratic Party to the Social Democratic Party.
A governorship aspirant on the platform of SDP in the state, Kola Oladeji, said Omisore, based on the party’s records, is not yet its member.
Omisore had on Sunday announced his defection to the SDP where he ntends to contest the September 22 governorship election in the state.
said his governorship ambition would be realised on the platform of his new political party, saying he was ready to rescue the state from the ruling All Progressives Congress.
But Oladeji his response to Omisore's defection said primary election that chased Omisore out of PDP awaits him in SDP.
Oladeji told Bounce News on Sunday in Osogbo that Omisore should not think he has what it takes to win the SDP's ticket.
Oladeji said: “From records available to us, Senator Omisore is not a member of SDP in Osun. I advise Chief Omisore to first and foremost, properly approach us to regularise his membership, and until that is done, he is not a member of our party.
“Also, we need to drum it loud and clear to the ears of Omisore’s supporters that they should not think we will fall for their delusional belief that Omisore has what it takes to win the governorship poll on any platform.
“We need to remind them that even on PDP platform, Omisore lost miserably to Aregbesola in 2014, even in spite of the backing of the federal government and all its security apparatuses. All those factors that guarantee electoral victory are no longer within the beck and call of Otunba Omisore.”
