- Fayemi has revealed the reason why he visited the SDP guber candidate in Osun election
- He said his visit to Omisore did not have anything to do with politics or the forthcoming rerun
- The Ekiti state governor-elect said he visited Omisore to show his concern and care for his welfare
The Ekiti state governor-elect, Dr Kayode Fayemi, on Tuesday, September 25, visited Senator Iyiola Omisore, the Social Democratic Party (SDP) governorship aspirant in Ile-Ife, Osun state.
Fayemi paid the visit to Omisore in his house at Oduduwa Estate, Ibadan Road, Ile-Ife.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Fayemi, however, told newsmen that his visit was not on political issues, but personal.
“Don’t you know that I am Omisore’s in-law and I am free to visit him anytime I wish?
“Therefore my purpose of coming to Omisore is neither on political issue nor rerun election coming up on Thursday.
“But I came to visit him to show my concern and care for his welfare,” he said.
Fayemi told newsmen that he would be sworn-in as governor of Ekiti state in the next three weeks. He pledged not to disappoint the people who voted for him as governor.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that Atiku Abubakar, PDP presidential aspirant and former vice president, has also visited Iyiola Omisore, to seek his support over the Osun state rerun election coming up on Thursday, September 27.
Since the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared Saturday’s election inconclusive and fixed a rerun for Thursday, September 27, PDP leaders, notably Bukola Saraki, the Senate president, and Abiodun Olujimi, the Senator representing Ekiti South at the National Assembly, have been visiting Omisore in Osun state in a bid to convince him to pass on his supporters to the PDP for the rerun.
