Why I didn't support Senator Adeleke, Iyiola Omisore explains

The governorship candidate of the Social
Democratic Party in Osun State , Senator Iyiola
Omisore , has said that he opted to support the
candidate of the All Progressives Congress , Alhaji
Gboyega Oyetola , in the rerun election in the
state because the leadership of the Peoples
Democratic Party in the state said they did not
need his support .

Omisore said this in Osogbo on Thursday during a
meeting with members of the SDP from across the
30 local government areas of the state .
Omisore , who defected from the PDP to the SDP
some months before the election , said that former
Vice President Atiku Abubakar wanted to come
and discuss with him before the rerun when he
came to Osogbo but he (Atiku ) was prevented
from coming by the leadership of the PDP in the
state .
A former Nigerian Ambassador to the Philippines ,
Dr Yemi Farounbi, had said this while narrating
why Omisore decided to work for the APC
candidate in the rerun supplementary poll held
on September 27 .

Farounbi said the same thing and Omisore , while
addressing the party members , said he adopted
everything the former envoy had said .
He said the party opted to support the candidate
of the party that was ready to implement the
manifestos of the SDP because the party was for
the best interest of the majority of the people.
Omisore said, “ I want to adopt all what Dr
Farounbi said. We gave them (APC and PDP ) our
manifesto . We dwelled on payment of arrears of
salaries, pensions and gratuities , on local content ,
employment for our youths and the
reorganisation of the educational system , among
others .
“ We went to negotiation with a clear mind that
Osun must be free and thank God our coalition
has produced a new future for the state .
