August 11, 2014

Governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Iyiola Omisore, has conceded defeat to Governor Rauf Aregbesola of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who was declared winner of Saturday’s governorship election  in Osun State, western Nigeria.


 Reflecting on the outcome of the election through his media aide, Mr. Diran Odeyemi,  the PDP governorship candidate said: “We would not be deterred  because of the development.  What we lost is the Osun State governorship election; we did not lose lives. We thank the Lord for everything.

“In all situations, I will continue to give glory to the Lord because He knows better than  us and He alone has answers to all questions.”

Omisore also congratulated the people of Osun State and expressed his commitment to his party and the state.

“Falling down is not new in the politics, rising up is the strength of a good leader. We shall bounce back. Congratulations to the people of Osun State because we all  won,” he added.

Omisore has, however, declined to congratulate  Aregbesola.
