- The Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Osun state said it was not aware Senator Iyiola Omisore has joined the party
- The state secretary of the party, Elder Femi Awe, said the party has no record of Omisore as a card carrying member
The SDP in Osun, has said it was not aware a former deputy governor of the state, Senator Iyiola Omisore, has joined the party.
This was revealed by the state secretary of the party, Elder Femi Awe, in an interview with Daily Post.
According to Awe, the party has no record of Senator Omisore as a card carrying member at the moment.
His words: “In his usual style and way of doing things, he has been announcing to whoever cares to listen that he has joined our party.
“In actual fact, Omisore has not personally or officially met the party leadership to express his interest of becoming a member. We have a laid down procedure and rules in which an intending member must follow, which he has not done, not to talk of submitting letter of intent to contest on our platform.”
Senator Omisore formally announced his switch to the SDP from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Sunday, May 20.
“It is with great concern that I have made a very expedient decision today, to withdraw my membership from PDP and join the SDP; a party that believed in a balanced, equitable and truly functional Nigeria.
“On the platform of the SDP, I shall with the support of my supporters, followers, and the electorate of the state, seek the nomination to contest for, and by His grace, be elected as the Executive Governor of Osun state on September 22, 2018,” Senator Omisore said in a statement.
