One of the leading contenders for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, ticket to contest the August 9, 2014 governorship election in Osun State, Senator Iyiola Omisore has criticized the performance of the incumbent Governor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, saying he has nothing to show as achievement in his first four years in office.
Omisore, who made this known on Tuesday at the Wadata Plaza, Abuja, national secretariat of the PDP, when he came to submit his nomination form to enable him contest the April 5 governorship primaries of the party, said he joined the race to restore the dignity of Osun State.
He explained that with the alleged lack-luster performance of Aregbesola, it had become very clear that the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, in the state had nothing to offer.
He said, “I am here in the PDP to submit my nomination forms to vie for the governorship of Osun State. I disagree with the question posed that South-West is composed of APC states. It is not the APC state; they came to the zone through the back door. We contested the court decisions; I can assure you, PDP will win in the zone hands down.”
“In Osun, there is no project completed in the last four years; the government has not paid workers salary in the past three months. There is nothing to show for governance in Osun in the past four years.
“The educational system has been bastardized for financial reasons. Osun State has secularity of religion. So, we have no business with religion creeping into our educational system.
“What Aregbesola and his APC are doing in Osun is part of administrative laziness; it is a lack of capacity; it shows a lack of depth; it shows a party, which will stop at nothing than to divide the people”.
