Osun State chapter of Social Democratic Party (SDP) has cautioned the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to stop spreading false information that both parties had an alliance to work together in the August 9 poll.
According to a statement issued by the state SDP Chairman, Mr. Ademola Isola, in Osogbo at the weekend, the current insinuation and SMS messages believed to have emanated from the PDP that SDP candidate, Mr. Olusegun Akinwusi, and the PDP candidate, Senator Iyiola Omisore, had a pact was in bad taste.
“SDP has said it severally that we are contesting this election to win and that our candidate is the best and can stand this election alone. We are quite aware that some others want to hide behind the integrity of Mr. Akinwusi and use it as an opportunity to shoot up their battered images.
“It is true that SDP and PDP had a common enemy at the poll but Akinwusi and Omisore are not having a joint mandate under a single party to vie for Osun governorship seat.
“We are silent campaigners in this election and many people thought that because we don’t have moneybags, godfathers, federal or state might and rascality, the coming August 9 election would be difficult for us but SDP will prove them wrong,” the chairman said.
