Confusion as SDP denies accepting PDP Chieftain and Ex-deputy Governor

State Secretary of the SDP, Elder Femi Awe has revealed that the party has no record of PDP chieftain and ex-deputy governor, Senator Iyiola Omisore registering as a card-carrying member.

In a statement to Dailypost, He said;

“Well, 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” Awe said.

Omisore, a former deputy governor of Osun state formally announced his switch to the SDP from the Peoples Democratic Party on Sunday.

“Our quest for an alternative political platform is basically in pursuit of a credible political structure that would guarantee that our people enjoy the benefits of accountable leadership at the state level from now. Notwithstanding my enormous contributions over the past years or so to building the PDP, after very deep thought and the widest consultations with my God, my family, my supporters in and outside Osun state. It is with great concern that I have made a very expedient decision today, to withdraw my membership from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and join the Social Democratic Party (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. “ he stated.
