Omisore Lists Conditions for Open Debate with Aregbesola

The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in Osun State, Senator Iyiola Omisore, has accepted the challenge of an open debate with the incumbent governor of Osun state, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola. Senator Omisore however listed some conditions that must be met before the debate can take place.
Governor Aregbesola had, during the commissioning of Ayegbaju Market, Osogbo, challenged candidates of opposition parties in the state to a debate about development in the State of Osun.
But in his reaction to the challenge, Omisore, through a release issued by Prince Diran Odeyemi, the director of media, publicity and strategy of his campaign organisation, and made available to Street Journal, said a current certificate of mental of fitness of Governor Aregbesola must first be tendered.
The statement said this has become necessary, because a non-governmental organisation, Egalitarian Mission for Africa had a running battle with Governor Aregbesola concerning issues of his health status.
Odeyemi also stated that “this, coupled with the open hatred the Governor often expressed towards Omisore before may make PDP disallow him from participating in any debate with Aregbesola, unless his security is assured”.
The statement reads: “When an argument is being drawn between two unequal parties, the weaker of the two may result to physical assault and harassment of the other party.
Aregbesola has not hidden the fact that he has personal hatred for a complete gentleman PDP is presenting as flag bearer. Senator Omisore, a complete gentleman and a holder of PhD is aware that Ogbeni Aregbesola presented O’ Level to INEC. So we need an assurance that Ogbeni will not physically assault our candidate
“The governor is yet to properly address the questions raised by Egalitarian Mission of Africa, a group that took him to court asking him to subject self to medical examination. Once we are assured that decorum would be allowed and that safety of our candidate is guaranteed, our candidate is ready for the debate.
Ogbeni Aregbesola has state boys, a group he is rearing and allowing our candidate to participate in a debate with violent people with array of thugs will be too much of a risk to take for us”, the statement concluded.
