It was just a matter of time. Former Osun Deputy Governor Senator Iyiola Omisore yesterday declared he is backing the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the forthcoming general elections.
He debunked reports he was undecided following the alliance between the APC and the Social Democratic Party (SDP) under which he contested the September 22, 2018 Osun governorship poll.
He said: “There is no rumour about where we are and where we are going. What the APC chairman in Osun State, Gboyega Famodun said was instructive and correct.
“God made relationship between me and the APC possible. Osun is one now and Ife remains the source from where all of draws our strength.
“I don’t have to tell anybody that I am with the party. Any wise person should know where I belong.”
Omisore spoke when Governor Gboyega Oyetola and his entourage, including the chairman of the APC in Osun State, Gboyega Famodun, was received at his Ife country home.
The governor proceeded to the palace of the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, in continuation of his “thank you visits across the state.
Omisore, who spoke briefly at the Ooni’s palace, said the coalition between SDP and APC was enough to “show where I stand.”
Omisore contended that his last support during the rerun Osun elections had given direction that he is fully with the ruling APC
