See Why Omisore Was Suspended By Afenifere


The Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere, has suspended the candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in the last governorship election in Osun State, Iyiola Omisore, for one year over his alliance with the All Progressives Congress at the rerun stage of the polls, Naija News Understands.

Mr Omisore, a chieftain of the organisation, who came third during the September 22 inconclusive election, backed the APC, which was trailing the Peoples Democratic Party then by 353.

The APC eventually won the election, arguably due to the support of the SDP candidate who got his supporters to vote for the APC during the rerun poll.

He was said to have gone against the decision of the group which urged him not to support the APC.

Afenifere, at its monthly meeting on Tuesday in Akure, announced the suspension, saying the action of Mr Omisore ran contrary to its position on the election,

The meeting took a decision to suspend the controversial politician for one year for violating Afenifere’s directive which affected the outcome of Osun election. It stated the decision via a communique issued at the end of the meeting and read by a chieftain of the group, Korede Duyile.
