What is the stand of Senator Iyiola Omisore, a former Deputy Governor in the forthcoming Osun State governorship election? Does he wants to contest the September 22, 2018 poll? And which Political party platform does he wants to contest the election?
These are the questions on the lips of the people of Osun State as Senator Omisore, a former Deputy Governor and a governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2014 governorship election in the state who has not been seen in any political gathering in recent time.
Though supporters of the astitute politician had three weeks ago burnt the flag and all insignia of PDP in the office of the two term senator located at Onward area, Osogbo, the state capital, there is no sign that Senator Omisore has settled down with any of the registered political party.
Osun State branch of the PDP said that Senator Omisore is still a member of the party as he has not officially resigned his membership.
According to Hon Soji Adagunodo, state Chairman of PDP, “Senator Omisore is one of the respected elders of our party, he has not resigned from PDP, if he wants to leave, he should tender his letter to the executive of the party and if he wants to contest the governorship election on the platform of PDP, let him come and do it with other aspirants in the party.
However, it was gathered by Western Post that the former Chairman of Appropriation Committee in the Senate has been holding talks with some political parties including the Social Democratic Party (SDP) and African Democratic Congress (ADC) Senator Omisore last two weeks held a five hour meeting with former governor of the state, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola who is the coordinator of ADC.
When contacted for reaction Mr Jide Fakorede, Media Aide to Senator Omisore told Western Post in Osogbo on Wednesday that they would not react to the PDP allegations.
He however confirmed that Senator Omisore is holding talks with some political parties adding, “Please, wait till next week, we will make our stand known. We are still holding talks with political parties and it is still on. We will come out next week. “
