Omisore congratulates Buhari, urges consolidation of Jonathan’s achievements

The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in last year’s Osun State governorship poll, Iyiola Omisore, has congratulated the President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari.

In a statement on Wednesday, Mr. Omisore tasked Mr. Buhari on Nigerian nationhood and unity, in spite of ethnic and religious plurality in the country.

“General Buhari and the APC will need to tap into the uniqueness of the Nigerian diversity to find the cord of unity that makes us one people and a great nation.

“The unity of Nigeria is central to the aspiration across all parties. Peace is essential for our development,” he said.

Noting the “great strides and development in all sectors” recorded by outgoing President Goodluck Jonathan, he urged Mr. Buhari to ensure “sustained guarantee of the freedom of information, of speech and of association is critical if the current level of success and achievement is to be sustained”.

“Going forward, militarized and autocratic styles of governance, autocracy and patronage will not serve us well,” he submitted.

Stating further, he commended Mr. Jonathan for the statesmanship he displayed by his timely concession of defeat.

“The developmental achievements of the Jonathan-led PDP administration in Nigeria will remain laudable and the footprints of President Goodluck Jonathan in ensuring accountable democratic governance will remain indelible in the history of Nigeria,” Mr. Omisore said.

    All criminals are now releasing statements from their hiding…You guys should be worried that your end has come.

      “Going forward, militarized and autocratic styles of governance, autocracy and patronage will not serve us well,” This guy is a sore prick, the same principles he’s always lived by are the ones he is now cautioning against. His end has truly come.

    Chai. But the Ekiti gate saga must be fully cleared first

  • sammyctu ode

    omisore, when good people are talking, convicts and murderers like you should not talk. Where are the achievements of jonathan? spreading and bribing people with dollars?

  • Moe

    “great strides and development in all sectors” ?

    “current level of success and achievement” ?
    “The developmental achievements of the Jonathan-led PDP administration in Nigeria” ?

    Mr. Omisore, can you please remind us of these things above that you are talking about? I mean what specifically are you referring to as “great strides”,or ‘developmental achievements’ etc. Please enlighten us.

    Consolidation? This man must be crazy. Which sane man or woman can point to a single achievement of Jonathan in six years?
    Omisore is lucky he was not sentenced to death for the death of Bola Ige. He should keep his mouth shut, or else, we shall revisit the case. Anyhow, the EkitiGate story is still alive, and Omisore is a major player in the saga.
    I can see him facing jail time for his role in this ignoble story.
    Anyone who likes this clown should advise him to go and hide somewhere.

    Change is here. For whatever reason, we should commend Omisore for saying something positive since 2001 when he left the AD and was subsequently impeached as the Deputy Governor of Osun State. That is a change. He is aware that he can no longer control the Osun State Commissioner of Police or the GOC in Ede and Ibadan. Change, change, change.

    All the rogues are outdoing each other to congratulate our President-Elect.
    Good to know that the rouges now realise it won’t be business as usual any more.

  • Maria

    Omisore sensing defeat for Jonathan absconded to Ghana weeks before the elections. We pray Ghana government to deport that criminal to come and face justice for his crimes.

  • Soblessed

    Please lists those achievements for all to know them.

    Mr. Omisore wrote: “Going forward, militarized and autocratic styles of governance, autocracy and patronage will not serve us well,” And I will ask: just what did he and his gang think they were doing in that hotel in Ado Ekiti as recorded in the virally circulated tape? MILITARIZED AUTOCRACY………

  • Maitama Tambari

    Which achievements?

  • Moe

    While depleting the Nations treasury and having the guts to bribe the electorate in Dollars can be seen as great, I very much doubt that these types of ‘great’s’ are things we necessarily want to ‘consolidate’ or sustain.
