Iyiola Omisore, a former Deputy Governor of Osun state, has told the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to go after his former party, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
He said it was wrong for the commission to have linked him with the N1.3 billion allegedly received from the Office of the National Security Adviser headed by Sambo Dasuki. He said the money was provided the PDP for his election campaign.
“The EFCC knows what it stands for today. I wasn’t detained because I took money from anybody. It was election money. Election money ought to be from the party. The money referred to by the EFCC was election money and in an ideal country, it ought to go to the party and not the person involved in the election.
“Are you going to collect money from the voters or members of the public? That is why I am confident that nothing will come out of it because the facts are clear and sacrosanct. So, the issue of the EFCC does not arise at all because it was election money and it is a party issue.
“It is not an individual issue and it has been taken too far,” he said.
Meanwhile, Omisore has declared his interest in running for Governor of Osun State under the platform of his party, Social Democratic Party, SDP.
