Saraki visits Omisore over Osun rerun election

Senate President, Bukola Saraki on Monday paid a visit to Iyiola Omisore, governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Osun state.

The governorship election that held in the state on Saturday was declared inconclusive by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) with the electoral body also announcing that a rerun election will be held in some polling units across four local governments – Orolu, Ife North, Ife South, and Osogbo.

The competition is between PDP’s Ademola Adeleke and APC’s Isiaka Oyetola who both polled 254,699 votes and 254,345 votes respectively. Third in the race is Omisore with 128,049 votes and a very strong hold on Ife, two of the deciding LGs in the Thursday’s rerun.

Saraki’s visit is to lobby Omisore to win these LGs for the PDP and according to tweets from both parties, they have come to a consensus.
