Omisore should accept defeat -APC

The Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress on Tuesday advised the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the August 9 governorship election in the state, Senator Iyiola Omisore, to stop protesting the result of the election, saying “he suffered humiliating defeat.” In a statement by the Osun APC’s spokesperson, Mr. Kunle Oyatomi, the party faulted Omisore’s post-election statement, in which he attributed his defeat partly to the damage done to him and his party by the former Resident Electoral Commissioner in the state, Amb. Rufus Akeju.

 The APC said, “To accuse INEC, and Akeju especially, is the hallmark of a man in delusional stupor. He has not been able to climb down from his high horse of living a lie. Omisore lost fair and square because the people rejected him over his notoriety as a violently disposed individual. “Secondly, he offered nothing to the people except to promise the destruction of everything the people were enjoying from Aregbesola’s administration.

 He presented himself to the people as a destroyer, not a builder and in the process he instilled fears in the heart of Osun people.” Osun APC said Omisore’s undoing was that he worked with a delusion that Governor Rauf Aregbesola was unpopular among the people of the state. It said, “We hope the committee he set up to find out why he lost the election will detect the fraud and the lie in which they had lived, deluding themselves that Aregbesola was ‘unpopular’ in the state. Omisore himself knew at that critical moment he was about to cast his vote that the odds were against him. In one brief moment of self-recognition, he was forced to say a little prayer before he cast his vote. “He talked about fraud of INEC without producing a shred of evidence. He is just setting up a committee to look for that fraud. The path of honour is for him to accept defeat honourably and move on.”
