Aregbesola to Omisore: your lies won’t give you victory

Sharing is caring!

Osun State Governor Rauf Aregbesola has said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate Iyiola Omisore’s lies would not ensure his victory in the August 9 governorship poll.
Aregbesola, through a statement by the Director, Bureau of Communications and Strategy, Semiu Okanlawon, said Omisore should tell the people his manifesto, instead of trying to discredit the landmark projects of the Aregbesola administration.
“We acknowledge his capacity for lies, fraudulent claims, innuendoes and fallacies. We, however, note that this is only the last resort of a candidate who knows the degree of the rejection he has suffered from the good people of Osun.
“Omisore must take the people for being daft to believe they will embrace his lies. In recent times, he has woven a litany of lies around the projects of the Aregbesola administration such as Opon Imo, road contracts, school reforms, financial engineering, youth empowerment schemes, environmental development projects and others.
“But what Omisore appears to forget is that the people are at the centre of these programmes, therefore they are the direct beneficiaries. Any attempt to discredit them will fail,” the statement further said.
It asked the PDP candidate how he intended to explain his almost one year of dubious claims of heavy indebtedness after the Debt Management Office came from the Presidency and faulted his claims.
“In other countries that revelation and confirmation are enough reasons for Omisore to back out of the contest, having been found not to be credible in his claims on the so-called Osun debt.
“But his shamelessness knows no limit. He has moved from one lie to another as if lies are all it takes to win an election,” the statement said.
The statement reminded the people that all the PDP candidate had done since he began his campaigns was to muddle up facts and figures.
“He has sought to set workers against the government. The workers, who have witnessed changes in the conditions of service since the Aregbesola administration came on board, would take the best decision by re-electing Aregbesola.”
Advising Omisore to tell the people what ideas he had to improve their condition, the statement said it is not enough to tell lies at rallies and rely on the proposed militarisation of the state to capture power.
“This arrogant reliance on the power of the Federal Government-controlled forces to subjugate a people in order to rob them of their rights to choose their leaders and endless lies will not help Omisore. At best, they will make him enter the hall of infamy in the politics of our land,” the statement concluded
