Senator Iyiola Omisore, candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in the Osun State governorship election has finally joined forces with the All Progressives Congress (APC) for today’s rerun election in the state.
Omisore announced his decision after consultations with his party members.
According to Omisore: “After due consultations with his party leaderships and members in all the 30 local government areas of Osun State.
“We have accepted to support the APC for victory in the rerun election tomorrow and thereafter form a coalition government.”
Omisore has earlier told his supporters to vote any political party that believes in the SDP stands for.
The Presidency confirmed Omisore’s agreement with APC on Twitter page.
Buhari’s aide, Bashir Ahmad wrote: “Sen. Iyiola Omisore says his party, the SDP, is set to form an alliance with our great party, the APC for the Osun re-run election
He said this while addressing journalists at his residence in Ile Ife on Wednesday.
He said, “We have accepted to support the APC for victory in the rerun election tomorrow and thereafter form a coalition government.”
The shocking development came barely three days after Senate President and presidential aspirant for the forthcoming 2019 presidential election, Dr. Bukola Saraki claimed that Omisore, had agreed to work with the PDP ahead of Thursday’s governorship re-run in Osun State.
Saraki had claimed via a tweet, “I thank Sen. Iyiola Omisore for the warm reception he and his people gave me and members of my entourage in Ile-Ife today.”
