Mr Adejare Bello, a former Speaker of  the Osun House of Assembly, says the  defection of  Sen. Iyiola Omisore from the Peoples Democratic (PDP) to Social Democratic Party (SDP) will  not affect the party’s fortunes  in the Sept. 22 governorship election in the state.

Bello, who is also one of the PDP governorship aspirants, said this on Tuesday in Osogbo while speaking with newsmen.

He claimed that Omisore left the PDP  following his failure in  the bid to  take over  the party structure in  the state and his (Bello) support for the chairman.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls  that Omisore on May 20 announced his defection from PDP to SDP,  the new  platform on which he  would contest the governorship election.

According to Omisore, PDP in Osun is in disarray and likely to remain in prolonged political captivity over the next four years.

But Bello, who was the running mate to Omisore in the 2015 governorship election in the state, said PDP would win the election without Omisore’s  inputs.

Speaking on the performance of Gov. Rauf Aregbesola, Bello said the governor meant well for the state but does not understand the terrain.

Bello, who also said  Aregbesola’s successor would be confronted with a huge debt, added that  he has the needed experience to govern the state.

He also urged other PDP aspirants not to allow the outcome  of the primary to disintegrate the party.
