2019: Former Osun Deputy Governor, Omisore Joins APC

A former Deputy Governor of Osun State, Senator Iyiola Omisore, on Thursday declared that he has joined the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Omisore debunked reports that he was undecided following the alliance between the APC and the Social Democratic Party, SDP.

The former Deputy Governor, who contested the September 22, 2018 Osun governorship poll under SDP, moved his support to the APC during the governorship election, which Gboyega Oyetola won.

Omisore, on Thursday, received Governor Oyetola and his entourage, including the chairman of the APC in Osun State, Gboyega Famodun, in Ife.

The governor and his entourage, then proceeded to the Ooni of Ife’s palace, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, in continuation of his “thank you visits across the state.”

Speaking briefly at the Ooni’s palace, Omisore said the coalition between SDP and APC was enough to “show where I stand.”

He said, “There is no rumour about where we are and where we are going.

“What the APC chairman in Osun State, Gboyega Famodun said was instructive and correct.

“God made relationship between me and the APC possible. Osun is one now and Ife remains the source from where all of draws our strength.

“I don’t have to tell anybody that I am with the party. Any wise person should know where I belong.”

He pointed out that his “last support during the rerun Osun elections had given direction that I’m fully with the ruling APC.”
