PDP chieftain and former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has warned Iyiola Omisore, the Osun State governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) to be mindful of Adams Oshiomhole, the national chairman of the All Progressive Congress, (APC), NgPolitics reports.
Mr Fani-Kayode gave the warning on Wednesday while reacting to reports of Mr Oshiomhole who led a high powered delegation to visit Mr Omisore who has no chances of emerging governor from the votes of the election realised so far.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had defeated the ruling party with 353 votes in the Saturday Poll. However, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared the election inconclusive citing that cancelled votes was greater than the winning margin.
INEC therefore ordered for a supplementary election in seven polling units located in four local governments – Osogbo, Orolu, Ife North and Ife South.
Mr Omisore is believed to yield influence in the last two LGAs given his position as a prince in these areas as he came third in the gubernatorial poll. Formerly of the PDP, he left the party to contest under the SDP when he failed to secured the ticket of the PDP.
If any of the two major political parties must emerge victorious, Omisore must not be underrated. This is why the PDP delegation led by Bukola Saraki, Senate President, also visited the lawmaker urging him to help the opposition party come out victorious. Omisore promised both parties his support.
While warning Omisore, Fani-Kayode alleged that the lawmaker was been offered a huge amount of money and a senatorial ticket.
“On sat. Adams Oshiomole called Iyiola Omisore a murderer and by wed. he offered him 480 million and the APC senatorial ticket,” the former minister said in a tweet.
“I trust that Iyiola will remember that dining with the devil is a risky business:the bible says what profiteth a man to gain the world and lose his soul,” Fani-Kayode added.
He thereafter said it was only God who could decide the fate of the people of the state.
“The fate of the people of Osun and the outcome of tomorrow’s rerun are in the hands of God and not in the hands of any man.
“No matter what the APC does and no matter who chooses to work for them, God’s counsel shall stand, His will shall be done and His name shall be glorified.”
