Immediate past governor of Osun State, Olagunsoye Oyinlola has described the leadership of Peoples Democratic Party in Osun State as a group of ex-prisoners.

The ex-secretary of the ruling party, Oyinlola who recently joined the opposition party, APC, made the jibes at the PDP leadership in Osun at a mega rally of the party held at the Osogbo Township Stadium yesterday.

Oyinlola said, “The candidate of their party is selfish. I don’t know how Bola Ige was killed. Although Omisore was accused of killing Bola Ige, God knows who was responsible for the killing.

“Let us look at this; he (Omisore) picked Prof. Wale Oladipo, who was in the prison with him (over Bola Ige’s case) to replace me as the National Secretary of the PDP. He nominated Jelili Adesiyan who was also with him at Agodi Prison as a minister and he installed Gani Olaoluwa, who was also with them at the prison as the PDP chairman in the state.

“Does it mean that we cannot hold public office except we are former prisoners? The running mate (Adejare Bello) is the only one different. The PDP is now empty; they pushed former Governor Isiaka Adeleke out, Alhaji Fatai Akinbade (Labour Party candidate) left them when he saw the way they were doing and I have also left them for the APC.”
