Senator Iyiola Omisore, the candidate for Social Democratic Party (SDP) in the Osun governorship election, has agreed to work with PDP to defeat APC in the rerun election on Thursday.
Omisore had earlier accepted defeat in his bid to become governor following the announcement of the election results but he vowed not to relent in championing campaign for democracy and good governance
He has now extended his support to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the
state after receiving the Senate President and PDP presidential candidate, Bukola Saraki in his home.
The meeting which took place in Ile-Ife, Osun state, meant that Omisore would work to see PDP emerge victorious in the rerun election on Thursday, a situation Saraki described as a “win-win”.
Saraki also revealed that they are working out the details of the partnership and it is believed that Omisore would likely be offered something in return for his support.
The next governor of Osun state would be decided in a rerun election on Thursday after the INEC returning chairman, Professor Adeola Joseph Fuwape, declared the initial election inconclusive
Fuwape said this became necessary because PDP’s Senator Ademola Adeleke, despite pulling the highest votes, did not have the required margin compared to the cancelled votes to be considered the outright winner.
