Osun Governorship Election: Omisore accepts open debate with Aregbesola

Mr. Omisore, PDP, declaring his intention to run for governorship of Osun state recently

The PDP governorship candidate in Osun, Iyiola Omisore, has accepted the challenge to an open debate with Governor Rauf Aregbesola of the All Progressives Congress.

The acceptance is contained in a statement circulated to journalists in Osogbo on Tuesday by Diran Odeyemi, Mr. Omisore’s Director of Media Affairs.

Governor Aregbesola, the APC candidate in the August 9 election, had thrown the challenge at the inauguration of Ayegbaju International Market on Tuesday in Osogbo.

However, the statement said the governor must ensure that security prevailed for
the debate to take place.

“Assurance of safety, among other things, would make Omisore to attend the debate,” the statement said.

“When an argument is being made between two different parties for instance, it may result in physical assault and harassment.

“The senator is a complete gentleman and a holder of Ph.D. So, we need an assurance that there will be no physical assault on him,” the statement added.
