There Is Confusion Presently As To Which Political Party Between The Opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) And Ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) Truly Has The Support Of Senator Iyiola Omisore Ahead Of Tomorrow’s Osun State Governorship Election Rerun.

At First, Reports Had It That Omisore, Who Is The Governorship Candidate Of The Social Democratic Party (SDP) In The Osun Election, Would Be Helping PDP’s Ademola Adeleke To Defeat Candidate Of The APC, Isiaka Oyetola, In The Rerun Poll Slated For Thursday By The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

INEC Had Declared The Initial Election “inconclusive” And Ordered A Rerun After Observing That The Number Of Cancelled Votes (3, 498) In The Poll Exceeded The Difference Of 353 Between Votes Earned By Two Of The Leading Aspirants In The Election.

PDP’s Ademola Had Polled 254, 699 Votes Against APC’s Oyetole, Who Got 254, 345 Votes, Leaving The Difference Of 353.

The Development Has Seen The Leadership Of Both Parties Making Advances At Omisore, Who Came Third With 128,049 Votes, In A Bid To Get Him To Give Their Individual Candidates The Leverage Required To Determine A Winner In The Poll.

After Meeting With Omisore On Tuesday In Ile-Ife, Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki, Had Expressed Assurance That The SDP Gubernatorial Candidate Would Support PDP’s Adeleke To Defeat Oyetola Of The APC.

“The Meeting Was Highly Successful And Promising. That Is Why You See Us Laughing Together After The Meeting. I Can Assure You That The Meeting Was Promising And It Will Help Osun State,” Saraki Had Said, Adding That, “It Was A Promising Meeting For Osun State And We Do Hope That The Outcome Of The Meeting Will Help Democracy And Help Osun State”.

Omisore Had Followed Up With A Reassuring Tweet After The Senate President’s Statement, Saying “Thank You, Your Excellency, The Senate President, Senator @bukolasaraki For The Visit, Together We Shall Make Osun Great Again.”

The Tweet By The SDP Governorship Aspirant Had Made Political Observers Conclude That The PDP Had Secured His Support To Help The Opposition Party Validate Its Supposed Victory At The September 22 Election.
