Incurable Psychosis of a Psychopath In Osun Gubernatorial Race By Agboola AbdulRahman)
The Flag bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party at the forthcoming gubernatorial election in Osun State is undoubtedly a character in the above heading, judging from his flaunting of a masked Mafia dressed teroorist as a security at campaigns and other public outings, which signifies the impending doom and terror to be unleashed on the State of the Living Spring, which only a tragic fate could foist on the people by the emergence of such a character as a Governor.
In an unholy attempt by the PDP Campaign Team to brand the flag bearer in an appellation that depicts honour deduced from Iyiola, a name with both positive and negative effect on the carrier. Iyiola could mean Folajiyo – a ruthless wealthy oppressor. People are no more carried away by meanings of sweet names earlier used by politicians to coarse masses as supporters, rather the antecedents of the personality is now germane to the masses to determine their level of support or rejection.
A thorough dissects of the antecedents of Iyiola Omisore and culpability in allegations of inhumanity against him justifies his heinous stance and threat to good governance in a sane society as detailed below.
The year 2000 witnessed the worst communal war between Ife and Modakeke where countless lives were lost and worthy properties destroyed. Chief Iyiola Omisore was labeled a strong financial of the war in favour of Ife township against Modakeke, which should ordinarily not been an issue as most personalities in the both communities were guilty of that act, but Chief Iyiola Omisore was the Deputy Governor of Osun State within the period with responsibility to avail his office to facilitate an end to the crisis while it lasted, but fuelled the crisis to an alarming level and does not enjoy good relationship with the people of Modakeke till date.
Chief Iyiola Omisore has never hidden his hatred for the Modakeke people to an extent of drawing the irk of Modakeke Youths as a result of his unguided utterances during his campaign, where he bluffed the votes of Modakeke people leading to the issuance of an ultimatum against him by Modakeke Youths. A Deputy Governor that failed to negotiate truce in a war concerning his home town will certainly set the State at blaze, against seeming oppositions.
On 19th December, 2001, the eloquent and most vocal Honourable Member in Osun State House of Assembly (Late Hon. Odunayo Olagbaju), was gruesomely murdered in Ife which was preceded by an instant protest organized by Activists against his wicked murder and called for justice. The ruthless Chief Iyiola Omisore dressed in a war mode apparently threw decency into the winds, personally led dreaded armed thugs to invade the Osun State Government House on 20th December, 2001 in a calculated attempt to attack his rival in the bid to get the ticket of Alliance for Democracy to succeed Governor Chief Bisi Akande who was escaped by the security aides, which later led to Omisores’ impeachment as Deputy Governor.
Chief Bola Ige was murdered on 23rd December, 2001 leading to the eventual detainment and trial of Iyiola Omisore, Jelili Adesiyan and others, between December 2002 to June 2004 prior to their discharge and acquittal over lack of sound evidence to convict them for the murder allegations. One issue that baffles the mind is the contest and winning of Senatorial Election by Iyiola Omisore in 2003 while in Agodi Prison. It could be recalled that the PDP succeeded with the operation kill Alliance for Democracy in most south western states in a fraudulent election facilitated by Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, Late Chief S.M Afolabi and cohorts, which many alleged as the reason behind the murder of Chief Bola Ige at the first instance.
The eventual fate that befell Late Chief S.M Afolabi and his inglorious exit is enough as insights to a conscious Yoruba man on grey political occurrences in Osun State between 2001 and 2005, which Iyiola Omisore is a great beneficiary.
At the 2007 general election, where Late Hon Kayode Idowu of Boripe Local Government in Osun State, led mobilized thugs to attack voters, shot an electorate at Methodist Primary School Otapete, Iragbiji and massive rigging of election in Boripe LGA, leading to the burning of ballot papers by Youths at the collation center, Chief Iyiola Omisore launched an unprecedented attack against Hon Rotimi Makinde of Ife Constituency who resistes Iyiolas’ usual electoral misconducts, leading to deaths of electorates at the instance of Omisore and was repeated at the 2011 Senatorial Election where Iyiola Omisore eventually lost to a more fortified Senator Babajide Omoworare.
In 2007, Senator Iyiola Omisore personally delivered the votes casted in all Ife Constituencies to the INEC Office Osogbo to pave way for the forceful declaration of Oyinlola as the winner in 2007, which served as a good reference used by the Governorship Election Tribunal to cancel the votes casted in Ife Constituencies in 2007. Indeed Iyiola Omisore has penchant for electoral fraud and violence which is his hallmark, since 2001 and does not in any manner represent honour as dubiously being packaged to the electorates, by the shenanigans in the fruitless and vain labour to foist Omisore on the people of Osun State.
During the previous reign of the Peoples Democratic Party in Osun State, the whole State was enveloped in fear and persecution of oppositions by the intolerable PDP agents that punished the good people of the State with inept leadership at all spheres of governance, total absence of peace and development, high rated confusion and poor fate suffered by an average resident of the State prior to the emergence of Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola who restored the lost glory of the State to the overall benefit of the people.
The administration of Rauf Aregbesola has laid solid templates for the overall transformation of the State as manifested in the effectual rural and urban development projects in road, education, health, agriculture and social amenities. The most fundamental responsibility of government is the enhancement of safety and security of lives and properties of residents, in which the current administration of Aregbesola has excelled to a great extent with the creation of an enabling society for peace and tranquility, in spite of financial strangulations by the PDP led Federal Government of Nigeria.
The people of Osun State deserves absolute peace as an avenue for both individual and collective progress and development and the character depict by a gubernatorial aspirant fooling around with comical corns and shabby dresses to mock the needy at variance with his usual extravagance outfits is a clear manifestation of deceits, stupidity and mania. An aspirant moving openly with masked men is a warning of the terrific terror that characterize the negative personality of Iyiola Omisore which should be rejected by any right thinking person.
Honour (Iyi) is just an item under Virtue (Omoluabi) with more positive values of respect, dignity, prestige and excellence. In essence, the people of Osun State are enjoined to remain virtuous as OMOLUABI in support of the Governor of the OMOLUABI People of Osun State.
