The Social Democratic Party, SDP, has said Senator Iyiola Omisore is a bona fide member of the party.
The Chairman of the Party in Osun State, Ademola Ishola, said this in an interview with journalists in Osogbo on Thursday at the inauguration of local government chairmen.
A governorship aspirant of the SDP had launched a verbal attack on Omisore following his defection from the Peoples Democratic Party. The aspirant argued that the former Chairman, Senate Committee on Appropriations, was just a sympathiser of the party and not a real member.
But the SDP chairman, while defending the new member of the party, stated that Omisore was duly registered as a member of the SDP at his ward in Ile Ife and had collected his membership card.
He said it was incorrect for anybody to say that the former deputy governor had not joined the SDP.
