Osun Guber: Omisore, PDP To Challenge Aregbesola’s Victory At Election Tribunal

omisore-aregbeThe Osun State chapter of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its governorship candidate in last Saturday’s governorship election, Senator Iyiola Omisore, have rejected the results that produced the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, incumbent Governor Rauf Aregbesola as winner. Consequently, they have declared their readiness to challenge the outcome of the election at the Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal.

The state Chairman of the party, Alhaji Ganiyu Olaoluwa, in a statement issued in Osogbo, the state capital, yesterday, said the PDP would challenge the results announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

He said the party had met and resolved that the results of the election be challenged at the tribunal, adding that the legal team of the party under the leadership of Chief Sunday Ojo-Williams, had met on the development and was already consulting with those that mattered.

Mr. Olaoluwa, who described the election as a robbery of the highest order, said it was marred by irregularities in many parts of the state, especially Osogbo and Ilesa.

“The PDP in Osun State rejects the outcome of last Saturday’s election in its totality and we are ready to contest it until the people’s mandate, which was stolen, is returned”, the state PDP chairman said.

In a related development, Omisore said the outcome of the election did not reflect the wishes of the people of the state, hence his resolve to challenge it at the tribunal.

The PDP candidate, in a statement he personally signed, assured that the wishes of the people would finally come alive, as he would challenge the election results.

He said: “I have resolved to continue to provide leadership until Osun State of our dream is realised. Let it be known that our people will no longer be taken for granted as we have opened the floodgate of democratic challenge which no force on earth can stop”.
