Why I decided not to support Senator Ademola Adeleke – Omisore
Senator Iyiola Omisore, the governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party, SDP, in the just concluded election in Osun State has disclosed why he decided not to support Senator Ademola Adeleke of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Speaking in Osogbo during a meeting with members of the SDP from across the 30 local government areas of the state yesterday, Omisore noted that it was only APC that met the terms of their manifesto.
He noted that he entered the negotiations in clear mind and opted to support APC thereafter.
“I want to adopt all what Dr Farounbi said. We gave them (APC and PDP) our manifesto” he noted.
“We dwelt on payment of arrears of salaries, pensions and gratuities, on local content, employment for our youths and the reorganization 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.
“In addition to what Dr Faroumbi said, the National Chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomole, said clearly that our discussion was devoid of any financial commitment. He said they were ready to work,” he added
