Memo To Senator Iyiola Omisore And My Expectations From His Campaign Crew
Senator Iyiola Omisoore was born on 15 September 1957. He hails from Ile-ife Osun state. Omisore served as the Deputy Governor to Chief ‘Bisi Akande from 1999 to 2002 on the platform of Alliance for Democracy (AD). He set the record straight been the first Nigerian to win an election in police detention, as a Nigerian Senator representing Osun East senatorial district from 2003 to 2007.
The 56 years old, catholic attended Federal Polytechnic Owo, Ondo state. He also holds a bachelor degree of Engineering in power and machine from Brunel University Uxbridge United kingdom. He also earned his M.sc in building services engineering. He recently bagged his PhD in infrastructure finance from the international school of management, Paris, France, last year.
The Otunba still believe in his dream and aspiration to become the state of the living spring’s Governor, he used his political power to bargain for the state’s major opposition governorship ticket ( PDP) which was contested by Honorable Oluwole Oke, Senator Olasunkanmi Akinlabi and Senator Isiaka Adeleke and he won. Who will now slug it out with the incumbent governor Ogbeni Rauf Aregbeshola.
The coast is getting clearer as August 9 2014 approaches for Osun governorship election to take place in ground style. Mobilization, social media awareness and pseudo-campaign is at top gear. Propaganda machineries by both parties are already at work.
To set the record straight Senator Omisoore has a rich resume, sound and rich educational background, massive leadership cum parliamentary experience and he also handled and supervised many projects in Nigeria successfully. As I was reading through senator’s profile some pertinent questions trickled in to my minds that are begging for quick answers. How will your rich resume transformed to good governance if elected? Can senator Omisoore be trusted with our commonwealth? Why does he want to be governor by all means despite his accumulated wealth? What are his manifestoes/plans for the good people of Osun state? How can you provide alternatives to education reforms of the present administration you openly condemn? These entire questions needed to be answered.
I share in the words of Ambrose Bierce who said and I quote. A politician thinks of the next election while a statesman think of the next generation. That’s a food for thought for our dear Senator Iyiola Omisoore, who publicly declared that his party will wrestle power from incumbent governor and wipe out his unpopular policies come August 92 014. May I call senator Omisore ‘s attention to the time-tested, firmly-held, state-wide believe cum resolve that financial capacity and newspaper interviews are not the basis for our people to choose whom to vote for but plain and honest manifesto. Even the holy scriptures instructs us to write the vision, make it plain that he may run (proclaim to others with haste) that reads it.
Of the entire leading aspirants in Osun state gubernatorial election Omisoore poses a greater threats to the present government, but what are the alternatives provided for Aregbeshola’s unpopular policies? Where is Senator Iyiola Omisore’s manifesto and plans for the good people of Osun state? Shouldn’t his manifestoes as opposed to rhetorical political slogans be the tools to win over Osun voters?
The improvements senator Omisore will bring to the health, education, security, agriculture, unemployment, infrastructural development that the present administration has not done, and not news paper interviews, propagandas and war chants should be the alternatives for Osun residents to choose better
Senator Iyiola Omisoore’s campaign crew should use his manifestoes to offer a credible alternative to the electorate.
