Osun Guber : Why We Teamed Up With APC - SDP



The Social Democratic Party, SDP, in Osun State, yesterday, explained why  it formed a coalition with the All progressives Congress, APC, in the just concluded state governorship supplementary election

National Leader of the party, Dr. Yemi Farounbi, explained while addressing party supporters in Osogbo that: “We laid our cards open on the table but the PDP refused to play with us.”

Farounbi said: “If the PDP refused to tango with us and the APC expressed its readiness, we went with the APC that was ready and we formed coalition government. Part of our agreement was that the state is a civil service state and civil servants welfare should be taken care of.

“Infact, let me tell you, how it all happened, on Monday September 24th, the Senate President, Bukola Saraki came by 2.00 p.m and told us that since Iyiola Omisore was a member of the PDP, he should reason along with them on the coalition and we laid our card on table for him but promised to get across within 24 hours.”

Also, on Tuesday, the following morning, Atiku Abubakar, through his campaign manager, Otunba Gbenga Daniel called that they were in Osogbo and they would want to come to Ile-Ife over the coalition arrangement and after waiting for hours, Atiku called by himself on phone and said, he could no longer come because the leadership of the PDP said Omisore and the party were irrelevant to them politically.

“They were quoted as saying that, we should do whatever that pleases us and that Atiku should not negotiate with us.
