Omisore Missing At Oyetola’s Inauguration: Has He Been Used And Dumped? Complete News
If anyone should steal the show at the swearing-in of Gboyega Oyetola, the new governor of Osun State yesterday, it should be Senator Iyiola Omisore, the candidate of the Social Democratic Party, SDP in the September 22 governorship election in the state.
Omisore, from a pariah became a beautiful bride who was courted by top apparatchiks of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC when they desperately needed his support to win a crucial supplementary election after the Ede-born dancing senator and candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Demola Adeleke garnered more votes than APC in the inconclusive election.
But alas, the Ile-Ife born politician was conspicuously missing at the inauguration of the governor he essentially facilitated his victory. What could be the cause? Has he been settled once and for all then? Could he be that things had fallen apart between the SDP candidate and the leadership of APC? Was it part of the pact that he would not be duly recognized publicly for the role he played?
These were some of the curious concerns and questions that agitated the minds of not a few political watchers including COMPLETENEWS. It is not impossible that the Omisore had been used and dumped.
Though, COMPLETE NEWS gathered from the grapevine that the former deputy governor was handsomely rewarded amidst other mutual agreements, but his best moment would have been at the inauguration. How would he have missed such an event for anything under the sun if the relationship is still rosy.
If Omisore has truly been confined to the dustbin of history after he delivered the tormented APC from Adeleke , too bad for him. Perhaps, he would have had a better deal under a PDP-led government if he had pitched his tent with his former party.
Just as Omisore had been ostracized by the Yoruba Socio-political group, Afenifere, thousands of Osun elites and masses would not forgive him in a hurry over the role he played in the crucial supplementary poll. Can we say that the Ile-Ife prince played his card well?
