Former Deputy Governor of Osun State, Senator Iyiola Omisore is now a member of the ruling APC.
Ahead of the September 22nd, 2018 gubernatorial election, Omisore was one of the leading candidates and the SDP gubernatorial candidate.
A strange political realignment was, however, recorded shortly before the rerun election held on the 27th September.
The birth of SDP/APC alliance was recorded and it resulted in victory for Governor Gboyega Oyetola at the 27th September, 2018 supplementary election.
While still retaining his membership of the SDP, the alliance subsisted and Omisore has since then been accorded recognition as a principal stakeholder.
He also nominated candidates for appointments at the state level. Commissioner for Youth and Sports, Mr Yemi Lawal and the Commissioner for Political Affairs and Intergovernmental Relations, Mr. Taiwo Akeju are among his nominees.
Omisore, who had been considered as an important stakeholder in the Governor Gboyega Oyetola administration had, however, retained status as SDP member.
Senator Iyiola Christopher Omisore on Monday, 15 February 2021 participated in the ongoing membership registration and revalidation exercise of the party and he is now a member of the APC.
