Breaking: See How Saraki Convinced Omisore to Work with Adeleke in Osun Re-Run

by on September 25, 2018

Following the impasse occasioned by Saturday’s inconclusive gubernatorial election in Osun state, Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki has taken some smart steps to have the front runner and candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Senator Ademola Adeleke emerge winner of the electoral contest.

However, Saraki who was last month named chairman of the PDP Osun State Gubernatorial Campaign Council on Monday reached out to his friend cum political associate and candidate of the Social Democratic Party, SDP, Senator Iyiola Omisore in a bid to have the former deputy governor of Osun state, work with the party in Thursday’s rescheduled poll in five polling units that would ultimately decide the winner.

Omisore who churned out an impressive 128,049 votes to place third is seen as the ultimate decider of the fate of the gladiators and given his frosty relationship with the APC, particularly the outgoing governor of the state, Rauf Aregbesola, the PDP has moved quickly to gain an inch advantage ahead of Thursday’s exercise. Also working behind the scene to have PDP reclaim the state is a former Minister of Aviation and a well-known critic of the President Muhammadu Buhari administration, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode who is an indigene of the state.

The outcome of the meeting was disclosed by Saraki who tweeted that both parties have agreed to work together.
