Senate President Bukola Saraki is now on bended knees begging Senator Iyiola Omisore, governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in the Osun governorship election to support the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) guber candidate, Senator Ademola Adeleke in the rerun coming up on Thursday, September 27, 2018.
Saraki revealed after visiting Omisore at his home in Ile-Ife on Monday, September 24, 2018 that; “Omisore has agreed in principle to support the PDP in the rerun of the election on Thursday.”
“We had a fruitful discussion with Senator Omisore. He used to be with us. And we believe he is helping us now. I am optimistic of a good outing for the PDP. After meeting with him, I am more optimistic now that with his support, the PDP will win. We are confident of a good outing. I am more confident now.”
“I was hard on INEC because it declared the Osun poll inconclusive after doing a good job. The issue of vote-buying was on the front burner but that was reduced to the minimum as against what we witnessed during the Ekiti poll. At the end of the day, the poll was again declared inconclusive. That sort of took away all the commendations that should have gone the way of INEC.”
