A former Deputy Governor of Osun State, Senator Iyiola Omisore, has defected to the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Omisore defected to the APC at his polling Unit, Ward 6 in Ile-Ife, Osun State, after which, he picked his membership card.

Omisore, who was accompanied to the venue of his declaration centre for the party by the Osun State deputy governor, Benedict Alabi, the APC Caretaker Chairman, Prince Gboyega Famodun and other chieftains of the party, arrived the place at 12.40p.p.m.

The former Deputy Governor had contested 2018 governorship election on the platform of the Social Democratic Party, SDP.

Recall that Senator Omisore was also the Peoples Democratic Party’s candidate in the 2014 Gubernatorial Election in the state.

In 2014, he was defeated by the candidate of the APC, Rauf Aregbesola and in 2018 he came a distant third behind Senator Ademola Adeleke of the PDP and the eventual winner, Adegboyega Oyetola of the APC.
