Osun Election: I Am The Most Popular Candidate – OmisoreA former deputy governor of Osun State, Senator Iyiola Omisore, believes his popularity will earn him a big success in the September 22 governorship election in the state.
The governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) said this during an interview on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics.
“I am the most popular candidate in Osun State now,” he said. “The issue is that Osun politics is Omisore and others.”
“Like I said, you don’t just do a bedroom analysis or beer parlour analysis; let us wait and see the result of the election,” he added.
Omisore was deputy governor of Osun State between 1999 and 2003, after which he served as a senator on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He later contested the governorship election in 2014 but lost to Governor Rauf Aregbesola of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
