Listen to article

Rauf Aregbesola, the Governor of Osun State, has jabbed Senator Iyiola Omisore, his rival in the forthcoming governorship election in the state. He said Omisore is a mere prisoner who rigged his way into the Senate.

Aregbesola swiftly added that it would be impossible for Omisore, who is contesting on the platform of the People's Democratic Party, PDP, to rig any election this time around.

Speaking in Osogbo on Monday, Aregbesola boasted that “God dethroned a general who fought in Monrovia, Mogadishu and in other war torn countries and now a former prisoner wants to unseat me. It is impossible.

“The general, who was sacked, was not a prisoner. It amuses me that a former prisoner, who went to the senate from prison is now the one threatening to unseat me.

“He did not win. The poll was rigged because our fathers were peace loving but they cannot try that now. If they attempt to rig, they will regret it. Let me tell you, there are some people who are not even qualified to contest any election, let alone think of winning. Don't be afraid of them.

“He is not fit to be a councilor because he did not win his ward. He cannot contest and win.”
