The Director-General of Ileri-Oluwa Campaign Organisation, the organisation that powered the campaign of Governor-elect Gboyega Oyetola in the just-ended Osun State gubernatorial election, Hon. Famurewa, has picked the Senatorial ticket of the party for Osun East.
Famurewa finally bagged the ticket after days of intense controversy and politics around the ticket.
This is against the backdrop of speculations that the seat may be conceded to Senator Iyiola Omisore, the Social Democratic Party (SDP) candidate.
Omisore had entered into an alliance with APC towards the rerun election that eventually produced Oyetola as the winner of the Osun poll.
Uncomfirmed sources said a key element of that deal is the concession of the Osun East Senatorial ticket to Omisore.
Famurewa’s emergence completes the trio of the party’s senatorial candidates in the state to wit- Commissioner for Justice and Attorney-general of the state Ajibola Bashiru-Osun Central, former governorship aspirant Lere Oriolowo-Osun West and Famurewa-Osun east
