Osun rerun: Fayemi leads APC chieftains to visit Omisore

Tuesday, September 25, 2018
Kayode Fayemi, governor-elect of Ekiti state, on Tuesday, September 25, reportedly led some members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the residence of Iyiola Omisore, the Social Democratic Party (SDP) candidate in Osun state governorship election.

 Fayemi’s visit comes barely 24 hours after that of Senate President Bukola Saraki. The PDP and APC are wooing Omisore ahead of the governorship rerun scheduled for Thursday, September 27.

The rerun will hold in seven polling units across four local government areas: Orolu, Ife North, Ife South and Osogbo. Ife is believed to be the stronghold of Omisore.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had declared Saturday’s election inconclusive.

Ademola Adeleke of the PDP had polled 254,699, while his closest challenger, Isiaka Oyetola of the APC had 254,345 votes. With 128,049 votes, Omisore placed a distant third.

Although all the 48 political parties will partake in the exercise, the contest is between Adeleke and Oyetola
