Osun guber: Adeleke, Omisore submit PDP forms

Osun guber: Adeleke, Omisore submit PDP formsAhead of April 5th primary election of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for the Osun state gubernatorial election, former governor of the state, Senator Isiaka Adeleke and former Deputy governor, Senator Iyiola Omisore yesterday were at the national secretariat of the party to submit their nomination and expression of interest forms.

The aspirants who spoke separately, boasted that the PDP was prepared to take over government from the incumbent, Rauf Aregbesola.

Senator Isiaka Adeleke who claimed that what he did in 22 months as a former governor of the state surpassed what Aregbesola has done in the past three and half years.

According to him; “I did not just wake up to pick the governorship form. My people said I should contest the primary and I am in the race to answer to this call to duty.

“As I speak with you, what I achieved then, nobody has been able to do half even with all the resources available to them.

“With the lean resources then, I achieved so much, with the huge resources now, I will achieve so much.”

Arise urges President’s intervention in Ekiti PDP crisis:

Meantime, former Senator representing Ekiti North Senatorial District, Ayo Arise has called for the urgent intervention of President Goodluck Jonathan in the crisis rocking the Ekiti state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, saying; “The way things are going, PDP might lose Ekiti and that will be disastrous.”

Senator Arise, who maintained that he had no problems with anyone who emerges as the party’s governorship candidate, added that; “The process through which whoever is picked as the party’s candidate emerges is very important and that process must be free, fair and transparent.”

He described the last Wednesday Ward Congresses as a sham, adding that the last Saturday’s primary election ought to have been shifted to allow for the resolution of the crises which arose from the congresses.
