Nigerians have taken to social media to react to news that Iyiola Omisore, candidate of the Social Democratic Party(SDP) for the 2018 Osun state governorship election has joined forces with the ruling party. The news was received with mixed feelings by many social media commenters.
While some blasted the All Progressives Congress(APC) for going back to beg Omisore to join forces with them in oder to attain victory after calling him a ‘murderers’, others were on Omisore’s side.
There have also been reports that Omisore was bribed with slots in Oyetola’s cabinet, senatorial ticket and cancellation of corruption charges among many others.
See reactions below
Omisore sold Osun to APC*
APC gave him 480 Million# Cash, offer him ticket to Senate, 2 House Of Reps ticket, 2 commissioners in Oyetola’s cabinet and to drop all EFCC cases against him and return his International passport, which has been with EFCC for almost a year.

I know a lot of you may want to blame OMISORE for being insensitive if this analysis play out but before you play the hypocritical card recall that PDP had been complacent and irresponsible with the way they handled his exit. He spent money to no avail and they called his bluff. pic.twitter.com/C8mJ62KNcs

APC meeting with Omisore is another low! This is a man you claimed killed Bola Ige, you dragged him when you came to power for his contributions in "rigged" Ekiti election in 2014 & seized his international passport. Now you went to "appease" the same man!

You sent Mesujemba and his ghost-worker aides to Omisore, APC went with a squad of Govenors and APC Chair. What do you expect?

How much is the freedom of your people worth? How many millions? How much? A Leader is the man who shows his people the pathway to liberty, freedom and development. Let their pains speak to your conscience Sir.
