….As South West leaders commend him for PDP truce in OsunThe country home of Dr. Deji Adeleke, younger brother of the late Senator Isiaka Adeleke went agog with wild jubilation when Otunba Iyiola Omisore paid unscheduled visit to the Adelekes on June 29, 2017.
The shout of Omioo from a mammoth crowd of Ife sons and daughters rented the air as the former deputy governor and two terms Senator was sighted by thousands of people who were preparing for political rallies scheduled to take place in some local governments in Osun West senatorial district
Otunba Omisore who appeared in a simple Ankara attire with a matching sandal was received by Dr Deji Adeleke who led the visitor and members of his entourage to his living room where they held a brief meeting before proceeding to another meeting where he addressed the waiting crowd.
At the meeting which was held inside the family hall and attended by mammoth crowd Omisore urged members of the party to be vigilant and protect their votes to prevent rigging during the election.
He told the gathering that the only way the late Senator Isiaka Adeleke can be immortalised is for the people of Osun West Senatorial district to vote PDP.
Earlier Alhaji Fatai Diekola a chieftain of APC from Oshogbo popularly known as Omo Olu Oja who was also at the meeting told the gathering that the end has come to the reign of terror of Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola in Osun.
"Am a member of APC but today am here to show my support for the family of Adeleke, this is my former party (PDP) we must all work to defeat Aregbesola's candidate in this coming election. He enthused.
Dr Deji Adeleke while addressing the crowd urged them to be vigilant and chase away imported thugs and fake voters from Lagos and any other places.
He urged the people of the area to report any suspicious movement and those who may impersonate as INEC officials during the election to the law enforcement agencies.
Those on the entourage of Otunba Omisore include, Barrister Ojo Williams PDP South West legal adviser, Rev Bunmi Jenyo PDP South West Secretary, Basorun Tayo Omojowogbe former Special Adviser to the governor of Osun State, Engineer Ogungboyega, Osun state secretary of PDP and host of others.
Meanwhile, more commendations are still being poured on Senator Iyiola Omisore for his ability to find lasting solution to the prolonged discord and polarization of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the State.
According to the Zonal Chairman of the party in Southwest, Olorogun Eddy Olafeso “the move by Omisore which led to the truce can be described as a worthy development which should be emulated by national leaders of the party. Senator Omisore's initiatives brought about this unique peace within the party and his sincerity and astute leadership quality must be commended by all because PDP in Osun State today can now stand as one,” Olafeso said.
Speaking further the Zonal Chairman said for PDP to regain its lost glory in the counry, other leaders must borrow a leaf from Osun State, and end the disunity that is ravaging the party and see themselves as a family under one umbrella, and strive to take the party to greater height.
"My belief is that this great achievement in Osun PDP, will motivate all other states to follow suit, in order for us to reclaim our lost glory,”
Olafeso also advised members of the party in Osun State that they should not allow the opposition to throw spanner in their wheel of progress. “We must now see ourselves as people with common front and that is the only way we can reach our desired goal,” he opined.
