“Iyiola Omisore’s decision to support the APC in tomorrow’s rerun is shameful. It is sad that he would seek to deny Ile-Ife the position of Deputy Governor simply for money.
“He told me he would stand firm two days ago and he told our leader and father Baba Ayo Adebanjo the same thing last night. I do not know what has turned his head but we shall forge ahead and by God’s grace Adeleke will win.
“There is no excuse or justification for joining or supporting those who treated our people like filth and slaves over the last 8 years and who rigged last saturdays election”- Chief Femi Fani-Kayode.
Sundiata Post recalls that Senator Iyiola Omisore is believed to weild influence in Ile-Ife which is one of the areas the re-run election will be taking place on Thursday(tomorrow).
The Osun governorship election which took place last Saturday was declared inconclusive by INEC following the inability of the Commission to organise election in seven wards.
From the results so far declared, PDP is leading with 344 votes having recorded 254,689 votes and closely followed by the APC with 254,345.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has fixed the supplementary election for Thursday (tomorrow).
