Osun Election: Why I Endorsed APC – Omisore

Senator Iyiola Omisore, the candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), has finally endorsed the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Osun state governorship rerun election.

Mr Omisore arrived at the decision meeting with a delegation of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and those of the All Progressive Congress, (APC).

His decision may not augur well with the PDP which had been banking on the support of Omisore to take power from the APC.

Omisore, who came a distant third in the Saturday inconclusive election, has been under pressure from the two political parties.

He had initially failed to endorse any of them asking his supporters to go with any party that shares the interest of SDP.

But addressing reporters at his Ife residence on Wednesday, he said his party had decided to endorse APC.

He said this was because of an agreement between him and the APC to jointly form the incoming government.

“We have accepted to support the APC for victory in the rerun election tomorrow and thereafter form a coalition government,” he said.

NGPOLITICS reported how a former minister warned the SDP candidate to be mindful of his dealings with the APC.
