Omisore will win Osun Election – Jonathan

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

President Goodluck Jonathan said on Saturday in Ile-Ife that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP,
candidate for the August 9 Osun governorship poll, Iyiola Omisore, would emerge victorious.

Mr. Jonathan spoke during a courtesy visit to the Ooni of Ife, Okunade Sijuwade.

“Omisore’s time has come …God’s time is the best,” he said.

He said Mr. Omisore was a “fantastic material” that Osun needs at this time to take the state to the “promised land”.

“I urge support for the PDP gubernatorial candidate, cast your vote for him and Mr. Omisore will not let you down,” President Jonathan campaigned.

Mr. Omisore is the major challenger of the incumbent Rauf Aregbesola of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Earlier, Mr. Sijuwade called for a minute silence in memory of the souls of departed heroes.

The traditional ruler named such heroes as the late Obafemi Awolowo, Bola Ige, Ado Bayero, the Emir of Kano and Igwe Okagwe, the Obi of Onitsha among others.

Mr. Sijuwade described Mr. Omisore as a humble person, saying that he “stepped aside” for former Governors Bisi Akande and Olagunsoye Oyinlola when he prevailed on him.

He said it is only God who has the power to appoint the president, governors, and traditional rulers.

On the unity of the country, Mr. Sijuwade said “without unity the country’s progress will remain very slow”.

He appealed to traditional rulers to join hands with the government to rid the country of insurgency.

“With their support, Boko Haram insurgency and other activities militating against national growth will become a thing of the past.”

He said the South-West zone and particularly Osun needed more federal presence in line with the president’s transformation agenda.

Mr. Sijuwade also called on the government to continue to give critical sectors – agriculture and aviation – a boost.

He solicited the support of the president for the revival of cocoa farming, completion of Ile-Ife water dam and the expansion of Ife-Ibadan expressway.

    Everybody that watch pdp rally in osun today very well will know that pdp is already defeated, one can even see it from Jonathan’s face, everything was a mess, the musicians were singing rubbish, they even stole apc’s campaign song that was compose by wasiu

    Pdp has matched Apc thug for thug , rented crowd for rented crowd , rally for rally , lies for lies , rice for rice …. What next ? Vote for vote , cash for cash …. Etc etc … Very interesting indeed

      It is easy to match anyone when you use the whole Federal Government treasury to bribe and intimidate others. Those supporting the PDP do not wish the Nation well. Not only have these guys been there at the state level before, they have been at the federal level for 15 unbroken years and we find that even our “poor” neighbours have overtaken us. The only way to make politicians of any party sit up is the fear of being voted out. If you continue to support a party that has underperformed for 15 years, where is the incentive for them to improve? Even the military has its way of removing bad leaders through a coup but you PDPigs are subverting the whole system with Federal money, federal police, the army, state security services to impose thieves and murderers. You are leaving us with only one choice………
