The Social Democratic Party (SDP) in a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Alfa Mohammed, said the party was not part of the conclusions reached Omisore and the APC.
The statement goes: “The Social Democratic Party (SDP) would like to make it categorically clear that the National Leadership of the party was not part of the recent developments involving our party’s gubernatorial candidate, Iyiola Omisore of Osun State, and the conclusions arrived at.
“We remain irrevocably committed to serving the Nigerian people on the basis of the vision, principles and goals of social democracy which underlie the philosophy of our great party, the SDP”.
On Wednesday, Omisore agreed to work with the All Progressive Alliance (APC) ahead of the rerun, saying the agreement was reached “after due consultations with the party leadership and members in all the 30 local government areas of Osun State”.
He said APC had agreed to adopt SDP’s manifestos in “forming a coalition government with SDP in Osun State”.
