Osun 2014: Why we back Omisore —Group

A coalition of Osun State Indigenes resident in Abuja under the name, Osun Reality Alliance, has announced its resolve to support the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Iyiola Omisore, in the August 9 governorship election. The group said this after its third meeting held at Kubwa, a suburb of the Federal Capital Territory on Thursday. The communiqué signed by the General Secretary of the group, Prince Moruf Adedapo, was made available to the Nigerian Tribune, on Thursday. “We are a coalition of Osun State indigenes resident in the FCT. We have watched development in our state with fears and as registered voters with stake in the future of our state, we have resolved as follows: “We reject the policies of the Rauf Aregbesola administration which have brought hardship and sufferings on women, youths and the elderly in our state. We particularly condemn the governor’s maltreatment of workers and pensioners. “We reject the threats of violence and incitement by the governor as capable of destroying the peace of our state. We are surprised at the penchant of the governor to preach violence and we call on our people to reject such incitement. “We condemn and reject the governance by propaganda which is the way of life of the Aregbesola -led government. We are sad that the APC lied to the world on education, health, roads, state debt .We reject government by deceit; “We support the candidature of Senator Omisore, as an alternative to the present governor because of his level headedness, his peaceful disposition in the face of provocation and his eight- point cardinal programme which we have read and digested. “We pledge to mobilise our people and relatives in other northern states to support the PDP candidate and liberate our people from this current government’’, the communiqué stated.
