Omisore Has Committed Political Suicide – Chief Ayo Adebanjo
Chief Ayo Adebanjo, the elder statesman and chieftain of the apex Yoruba social-political group, Afenifere, has said that Iyiola Omisore, the candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), has committed political suicide by throwing his weight behind the All Progressives Congress (APC), ahead of Thursday’s governorship rerun election in seven units across 4 Local Government Areas (LGA).
Omisore had been visited by both PDP and APC leaders to seek his support against the Thursday’s re-run election before he took his final decision yesterday.
The SDP governorship candidate said his party’s decision to form an alliance with the APC was because of its readiness to adopt and implement SDP’s programme.
However, Adebanjo, who spoke to reporters on Wednesday night, said the SDP candidate had committed political suicide.
The Afenifere chieftain said, “He (Omisore) is on his own.
“Without no consultation with either the chairman of the SDP and Afenifere, he made the statement.
“He is completely on his on. Up till Tuesday night, he told me that there was nothing like that; it just shows the type of character he is.
“I can assure you that he will fail. It is a political miscalculation, he has committed a suicide.”
