Senator Iyiola Omisore, candidate of the Social Democratic Party in last Saturday’s governorship election in Osun State has given conditions to Senator Ademola Adeleke, governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the Thursday’s rerun of the poll.
Omisore is insisting that; “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.”
The election was declared inconclusive by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Sunday because, according to the commission, 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.
After the collation of all the results from the 30 council areas of the state, Adeleke of the PDP had 254,698 while the candidate of APC, Gboyega Oyetola, polled 254,345.
INEC said the rerun would take place in seven polling units located in Orolu, Osogbo, Ife North and Ife South council areas on Thursday.
Omisore became 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.
