The energetic President of the Nigerian Senate DR ABUBAKAR BUKOLA SARAKI lands in Ibadan and being briefed by Bankole Omishore before heading to Ile-Ife to meet SENATOR IYIOLA OMISORE…,” Momodu tweeted.
Triotinaija had earlier reported that there were indications in Abuja on Sunday that the national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party might strike a deal with a former Deputy Governor of Osun State, Senator Iyiola Omisore, in a bid to win the state rerun governorship election slated for Thursday, investigations by our correspondent have revealed.
Top sources in the PDP confided in our correspondent that the President of the Senate, Senator Bukola Saraki, who also heads the party’s 85-member governorship campaign council in the state, would be involved in the negotiations.
It was generally believed that Saraki’s efforts at bringing the runner-up in the party’s governorship primary in the state, Dr Akin Ogunbiyi, with Adeleke, helped the party on Saturday.
The source said, “We will involve Saraki in our meetings with these men. We cannot afford to lose the election in the state.
“Then, don’t forget that we have a working relationship with all the opposition political parties under the umbrella called Coalition of United Political Parties. We will invoke the spirit behind that.”
