The governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party, (SDP) in the forthcoming governorship election in Osun State, Senator Iyiola Omisore has debunked growing insinuation that he was planning to return to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Speaking with newsmen shortly after paying homage to the Owa Obokun of Ijesaland, Oba Gabriel Adekunle Aromolaran in his palace at Ilesa as part of lined up programme to flag off his campaign, Omisore said rather than move to the party, a lot of PDP chieftains will soon join his campaign train.

It would be recalled that Omisore is talking with a faction of PDP in a bid to unseat the ruling APC in the state.

Omisore who revealed alleged plan by the incumbent, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola to ensure that Osun state remains indebted to him and his cronies for at least a period of fifteen years even after leaving office said that the plan is embedded in a fake contract document.

According to him, the fake contract document titled the “Award of Contract for Dualization of Ereja Square-Imo-Ilesa-Akure Expressway, Rehabilitation of Ereja Square with spur-Irojo- Ilesa/Akure Expressway, Majestic uplift and Redefinition of Ilesa city Centre and Rehabilitation/Rehabilitation of Akoda-Ede-Ara-Ejigbo, Iwo-Osogbo (Testing Ground) Kelebe-Iragbiji road” was awarded in the sum of #14.4Billion.

He claimed that the Office of the Accountant General was immediately directed to issue an Irrevocable Standing Payment Order (ISPO) in favour of Slavaborgu Nigeria Ltd, under which arrangement, monies due to Osun State Government from the Federation is subjected as first line charge, to monthly deduction at source of #337Million payable to the company for the next fifteen years.

Omisore mentioned many loans obtained by the Aregbesola administration allegedly designed to siphon from the Osun State Government coffers monies and assets lawfully belonging to the people of Osun state.

He urged President Muhammad Buhari and the Finance Minister to disallow the latest #337 million monthly deductions from Osun state coffers into the account of any bogus company.
