Omisore’s victory at polls not affected with
*Oladipo’s exit ― SDP

Senator Iyiola Omisore
The Social Democratic Party (SDP) has said
that the exit of Alhaji Tajudeen Oladipo from
the party has changed nothing in the party’s
structure, formation, and desire of Osun people
to deliver victory for the party and its
candidate, Senator Iyiola Omisore, in
the September 22 governorship election.
The SDP spokesperson, Mr Taiwo Akeju,
reacting to the purported defection of Oladipo
from SDP to the Peoples Democratic Party
(PDP), told Nigerian Tribune that the party was
not moved by the development, adding that
“such a move is expected, and as a party
which was not built around individuals, but
people, this has changed nothing.”
According to him, “Oladipo is not sincere in his
demands to be made deputy governorship
candidate to Senator Omisore as a condition to
remain in the party, which should not even be a
condition for somebody of his calibre to
negotiate with. He is a father, an elder; he
should remain an elder statesman.
“As an elder statesman, he is asking to be
made the deputy governorship candidate, a
position which has already been given to a
youthful indigene, Mr Yemi Lawal, SDP being
the first party to comply with the ‘Not Too
Young to Run’ law, recently passed by the
Senate and accented to by President
Muhammadu Buhari,” Akeju said.
Besides, he hinted that Alhaji Oladipo partook
in a collective agreement reached by SDP that
the office should be ceded to Osun-West,

Besides, he hinted that Alhaji Oladipo partook
in a collective agreement reached by SDP that
the office should be ceded to Osun-West,
whiich had been complied with, whereas he is
from Osun Central, saying his nomination
would be a violation of the agreement.
“The party’s supremacy reigns above personal
desires. From day one, the party had zoned the
deputy governor position to Osun West and
Alhaji Oladipo is from Osun Central and the
zone has occupied the governorship position
for 12 years. So, it is just expedient that SDP
takes its deputy governor from Osun West. His
demand is a selfish one.
“Already, we have a special plan and
consideration for Osun Central, Osogbo, and
what we’ve done is the best arrangement. And
beyond this, we see Alhaji Oladipo as a senior
party man, and on our part, we’ve told him to
reconsider his decision in the interest of the
party, but he said otherwise. Now the PDP he
has run to won’t give anything to Osogbo. But
we wish him all the best.
“The PDP already is a party with no
members; the party is already in disarray, and
what they are currently doing is to induce
people with money, which is unfortunate.
Akeju reassured that Oladipo’s defection would
not create any vacuum in SDP.
“Let me assure our people that there won’t be
any vacuum at all. SDP is not built around
individuals. It is built around the people. And
as we all know, the Omisore agenda is the
people’s project. It is God’s project, which no
person can stop,” he stated.
