‎Osun Election: Omisore promises to run pro-people government

Iyiola Omisore is the candidate of the PDP for the August 9 election.

The gubernatorial candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Iyiola Omisore, has promised to run a world class government in Osun State in which development and prosperity would embrace all stakeholders if voted in at the August 9 gubernatorial election.

In his final campaign statement, Wednesday, Mr. Omisore said that the welfare of the people will be paramount in his leadership, adding that his eight-point agenda will be implemented from a pro-people angle.

“The people will come first – artisans, public servants, youth, women and other sub sectors of the population,” Mr. Omisore said.

“Development programmes will be people centred and I will not sacrifice the good of our people for anything. I have gone round the remotest parts of the state. I have listened to our people.

“I took notes on all the wards visited. I promise development and prosperity that leave no one behind,” Mr. Omisore added.

In his eight-point agenda, Mr. Omisore said that he will focus on education, people driven agricultural policy, enhanced health care agenda, sustainable infrastructural development agenda, and mainstreaming of youth and women development.

The others include a “dignified” employment agenda, restoration of dignity of public service administration as well as good governance and public accountability.

“I will be a governor for all irrespective of religious affiliation,” Mr. Omisore said.

“The divisions created within our peaceful state by the APC government will be healed. The pains of parents over evil School policy, the slave holding agricultural policies and poverty inducing capital flight will be a thing of the past.

“As a royal prince from paternal and material sides, I will give due honour to traditional institutions.

“I will bring my experience as a certified engineer to bear to ensure value for money in project management. Never will Osun again witnessed shady contract awards and engagement outside due process.

“Your vote for me on Saturday is a vote for liberation from the pains and slavery of the past four years. If elected Governor on Saturday, I will stand firm with the people from the beginning till the end,” Mr. Omisore said

    The divisions created in Osun by the APC? The only divisions in Osun is the one in the PDP itself where its chieftains are defecting to the APC, so what is this man talking about? If you will contest elections to be elected as a governor, he can at least fake some dignity and not feed lies to the same electorate he expects to vote him in.

      No any other governors in Yoruba land has created division between Christians and Muslims than Ogbeni Aregbesola. In Yoruba land we do not have problem with religion. Christians, Muslims and traditional gods worshipers have been co-existing and living side by side without a fight. However, Ogbeni Aregbesola brought religion division into Osun and it must be stopped b’cos we Yorubas are one.

        If Ogbeni brought religious division, why did he include the Bible, Quaran and Ifa in Opon Imo? Why was the interdenominational worship center constructed? Why is the Osun Osogbo festival promoted? And why are most of his cabinet Christians. It is some Christians that are allowing themselves fall for PDP’s gimmickry. I am a Christian and I am not fooled by the PDP. Many Yoruba Muslims were steadfast to defend Yorubaland whenever the center tries to impose itself on us. Akintola and Remi Fani Kayode were Christians and they had no problems aligning with Muslim NPC in their time; Alhaji Dauda Adegebenro was a Muslim and he stood gallantly behind the Action Group. Musiliu Obanikoro and Jelili Adesiyan are Muslims; they left their jobs as Ministers to come to Osun to impose their Party on us and you want to accuse Ogbeni of fanning religious animosity? Chrisore is a Christian and he has a history of violence. Jonathan is a Christian and he militarizes civil elections–is Ogbeni responsible for all of these?

        Let all Christians shine their eyes and vote for APC “tiwa n tiwa” on Saturday and shame all of these people running around calling the name of our Lord Jesus Christ in vain– for it is written: “Surely the Lord God will help us;Who is he who will condemn us? Indeed they will all grow old like a garment;The moth will eat them up”. Amen. That is the lot that will befall the PDP.

          Amen. The PDP desperadoes will be disgraced on Saturday.

          Religion is a personal choice of an individual human being and a responsible government should not bring religion into the government (separation of state and religion). No amount of APC media propaganda will change Osun people from voting out a religious bigot. Yorubas are one, we don’t want a technician who couldn’t pass Nigeria Engineers Association certification exam calling himself an engineer to divide us along religion. APC was disgraced in Ondo and Ekiti states and so shall it be tomorrow in Osun state.
