The Lagos State chapter of the Action Congress of Nigeria has described the former Deputy Governor of Osun State, Iyiola Omisore as a frustrated political opportunist who is finding comfort in uttering inanities to cover his frustration.
The party tells Omisore to keep his mouth shut and mourn the end of his selfish politics rather than making statements that merely illustrate how frustrated he is.
In a release in Lagos, signed by the Lagos State Publicity Secretary of the ACN, Joe Igbokwe, the party said the recent interview granted to This Day by Omisore where he spent good space uttering gibberish shows that Omisore and his ilk are finished.
It urges Omisore to proceed to political retirement as his ilk will never ever again be allowed to infest politics in Nigeria.
“The interview revealed the distracted, disturbed and troubled mind of a man that was primed to be a thug, who when he found himself in an exalted office as the deputy governor of Osun State, debased and reduced the office to the extent that he was ignominiously removed from office. That he waited to be compensated with a senate seat while still serving time in detention for the murder of Chief Bola Ige, shows that Omisore is a classical impostor that has no place in an orderly and well governed society. That he was routed out of office last April, after he saw his carefully constricted house of cards as the next Osun governor go up in flame, was enough to provoke the kind of anger and frustration he ventilated through the interview.
“The name Omisore conjures a reprehensible image of a hired rough neck and a thug and such shallow understanding of politics is bound to end in the shallow political grave Omisore has ended. His penchant to get flippant with words and make ludicrous claims is only a symptom of his frustration.
“We know that Omisore is finding it hard to outlive the sudden death of his politics of the stomach, with which he and his partners in electoral fraud and impunity infested and looted the South West before their rustication recently. We know that Omisore is a frustrated politician who has watched as his house of cards collapsed with the rustication of the impostors that were imposed to drag Southwest politics to the mud by the erstwhile Obasanjo government. He is now a desperate loose cannon who finds sounding irritable, rash and unguarded in his use of words as sufficient comfort to cushion him from the cold political exile he had been sentenced to.”
ACN further stated: “Shifty characters like Omisore are bound to have their one minute in the sun, where like the robots they are, they engage in the dance of shame that characterized the era the Omisores and other impostors reigned in Osun State. Because they were placed in power by the sleight of hand of their master, they saw their commission from the prism of despoliation, which was why no achievement or worthy monument survived their brief reign. Omisore is a bad footnote in the politics of the Southwest and Nigeria and that is why, like a rolling stone that gathers no moss, he opens his mouth shamefully to demonstrate to the entire world his nuisance value.
“But we note that the careless deployment of words and use of thuggish means is one notable character of Omisore. We all know how this roughneck became the hit man of the impostors as their short reign lasted and this was after his notorious involvement in the issues relating to the murder of Chief Bola Ige. We want to remind him that the Bola Ige case is not closed and that one day, he would be called to answer for his involvement in that treacherous art.
“We want to let Omisore know that he is a finished product that will never ever be allowed to infest the Southwest and national politics. This is a fact he must live with for the rest of his life.”
