The candidates of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) during the Osun governorship election, Iyiola Omisore, has agreed to work with the All Progressives Congress (APC) ahead of a rerun governorship election slated for Thursday, September 27, 2018.
Omisore has become the beautiful bride of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the APC with a crucial rerun vote for both parties looming.Omisore hails from Ife and that part of Osun remains his stronghold.
There is a total of three polling units at stake for the APC and PDP in Ife.
On Monday, September 24, Senate President Bukola Saraki drove to Ife for a deal cutting meeting with Omisore. Afterwards, Saraki announced that Omisore had agreed to work with the PDP ahead of the rerun.
24 hours after however, Omisore denied that he had agreed to work with the PDP.
“The news going round that I have agreed to work with the PDP is the falsehood,” Omisore told SaharaReporters.
On Tuesday, September 25, Omisore held a meeting with APC chieftains and agreed to work with the governing party in Osun instead, we have been told by some of the chieftains who attended this meeting.
The meeting was attended by APC Chairman Adams Oshiomhole, Kano Governor Abdullahi Ganduje, Ogun State Governor Ibikunle Amosun, Minister of Information Lai Mohammed, Ekiti Governor-elect Kayode Fayemi and Oyo State Governor Abiola Ajimobi, among others.
“Omisore has agreed to work with the APC in Thursday’s rerun. The deal was sealed after our meeting with him in Osogbo, early Wednesday”, one APC chieftain claimed.
