image21-300x194 Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Osun State and its governorship candidate in last Saturday’s election, Senator Iyiola Omisore have again vowed to challenge the outcome of the poll. The state chairman of the party, Alhaji Ganiyu Olaoluwa, in a statement issued in Osogbo yesterday, said the PDP would contest the results released by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) whenever the election tribunal is constituted. He said the party had met and resolved that the results of Saturday’s election be appealed, adding that the legal team under the leadership of Chief Sunday Ojo-Williams, had met and was already consulting with relevant persons. The Chairman, who described the election as a robbery of the highest order, said it was characterised by malpractices in many parts of the state, especially Osogbo and Ilesa. “The PDP in Osun State rejects the outcome of last Saturday’s election in its totality and we are ready to contest it until the people’s mandate, which was stolen, is returned,” Olaoluwa said. Similarly, Omisore has disclosed that the outcome of the election did not reflect the wishes of Osun people.In a terse statement he personally signed on Monday, the PDP flag bearer expressed hope that he will continue to struggle to attain the best form of democracy for his people. “I have resolved to continue to provide leadership until Osun State of our dream is realised. “Let it be known that our people will no longer be taken for granted as we have opened the floodgate of democratic challenge which no force on earth can stop,” he said.
