ISIAKA ADELEKE MUST NOT DIE IN VAIN - OMISORE
PDP leader in Osun State Otunba Iyiola Omisore has urged all democrats to cast their votes for Ademola Adeleke in the coming Osun west bye election.
Speaking in his house in Ile Ife when the senatorial candidate of the party paid a solidarity visit to him, Omisore said the election of Ademola became necessary because of the mysterious death of his brother.
He stressed the need for all and sundry to vote for Ademola Adeleke for him to complete the tenure of his late brother and also to sympathise with the family over the untimely demise of the late senator.
Senator Omisore stated that since we are all mortals we are all bound to return to our creator one day adding that he would do everything within his capacity to ensure that victory comes the way of the party during the election.
He called on all the factions in the party to close ranks and admonished those feeding fat on the crisis in the party in Osun to desist from such henceforth.
Earlier the former speaker of Osun State House of Assembly Hon Adejare Bello while introducing those in the entourage of the senatorial candidate, said he was happy to re unite with Omisore adding that without the support of Otunba Omisore it wouldn't be possible to coast home victory in the coming election.
He spoke further that the need to win the coming election necessitated the coming together of the two groups in Osun to support the family of Adeleke.
He pointed out the the alliance was based on equal partnership adding that the candidate does not belong to any of the two factions in Osun State PDP.
He revealed that the coming together to work for the candidate was the handiwork of Otunba Omisore and other notable leaders like Dr olu Alabi, Oluomo Tajudeen Oladipo and few others.
In his remarks Barrister Ojo Williams who led the negotiation team from Omisore's group allayed the fears of some members of the group that they've been traded off.
He re echoed Otunba Omisore's statement on the needs to give sympathetic votes to Adeleke's family as a compensation for the loss the family suffered as a result of the death of the late Senator .
He advised social media critics from both sides to sheath their swords adding that they should shun any publication that could jeopardise the chance of the candidate
He stated further that in Yoruba land only a younger brother is allowed to inherit from what his older brother left behind not the other way round, hence the need for supporting Ademola Adeleke as a compensation for the death of his brother
The senatorial candidate Dr Ademola Adeleke in his response said he has little or nothing to say, pointing out that he has come back to where he belongs.
" It's true that we left PDP for APC as a result of minor misunderstandings but I can tell you that during our short sojourn in APC the souls of all Adelekes were here" .
The party chairman Dr Bayo Faforiji also urged all members of the party to work together as a team to ensure that the party wins the election
He pointed out that people of the state were looking forward to the party to lift them out of the abyss of abject poverty that APC administration in the state has plunged them into.
