Senator Iyiola Omisore

The former deputy governor of Osun State, Senator Iyiola Omisore, on Tuesday said he was not aware of the purported suspension order placed on him by the Pan Yoruba socio-cultural group, the Afenifere.

Omisore, a former chairman, Senate Committee on Appropriation, who was the governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) during the September 22, 2018 governorship election in Osun said, his resolve to form an alliance with the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) few days to the conduct of a rerun exercise of September 27 was the outcome of the resolution passed by his party, the SDP.

Apparently reacting to the one year suspension slammed on him by the Afenifere in a press release personally signed by him and made available to Tribune Online in Osogbo, he stated “It was the Osun Social Democratic Party (SDP) that passed a resolution for a coalition agreement with the All Progressives Congress (APC), which is the party’s supremacy in decision making.”

Omisore said, “the Afenifere’s action is at variance to the reality on the ground as far as the party politics in Osun State is concerned.”

He said, “I’m unaware of the pan-Yoruba group’s directives because we also have bonafide, notable and active APC members in Afenifere.”

“The interest of Osun SDP was the development of the state, and of the two parties involved in the rerun election, it was the APC that agreed to implement the SDP’s manifestos, the reason the decision was made.

“In as much as I’m a member of Afenifere, SDP members in Osun State are not necessarily members of Afenifere. Osun politics is local and I acted in consonance with the position and the will of Osun SDP.

“However, I’m yet to be informed on the so-called Afenifere’s suspension, which as far as I’m concerned bypassed the principle of fair hearing.”
