The national chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, has debunked insinuations that a deal involving money and political concessions were made with Senator Iyiola Omisore of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) to support the party.
Legit.ng reported that Omisore entered into alliance with the APC on Wednesday, September 27, to support the ruling party during governorship rerun held in the state on Thursday, September 27.
It was gathered that with such alliance, the candidate of APC, Gboyega Oyetola, was able to defeat his closest rival from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ademola Adeleke.
While addressing newsmen on Friday, September 28, in Abuja, Oshiomhole, said the people of Osun made their free choice by voting the APC candidate, Gboyega Oyetola, at the election.
He, however, added that the APC had some agreements with Omisore which bothered on policies and the welfare of the people of the state, but certainly did not give him money as being speculated.
Oshiomhole, however, appealed to the president of the Senate, Bukola Saraki and the speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, to reconvene the National Assembly.
This, he said, was critical to consider the pending Bill from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for the conduct of the 2019 general elections and other matters.
He stressed that the president of the Senate was under a huge moral burden to resign or be impeached.
Oshiomhole, while commenting on the party’s ongoing presidential election across the federation, said it was waiting for the results being collated from various wards before making it public. (NAN)
