Iyiola Omisore, former Deputy Governor of Osun State, officially decamped from the Social Democratic Party (SDP) to the All Progressive Congress (APC).
During the 2018 gubernatorial election, Mr. Omisore was the SDP's governorship nominee, and he came third in the poll.
After Gboyega Oyetola, the APC's nominee, lost to Ademola Adeleke of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) by 353 votes, he later threw his weight behind the APC in the re-run of the governorship election.
Mr. Oyetola subsequently won the re-run by 462 votes and was declared the winner by several local and international observers in some polling units amid recorded irregularities.
Since then, Mr. Omisore has been one of the key policymakers in the government of Mr. Oyetola, claiming that his manifestos were approved by the ruling party.
With his supporters singing "Oyetola for the second term," he formally decamped on Monday. In his unit in Moore, Ile-Ife, he made his official registration.
Mr. Omisore was welcomed into the party by Benedict Alabi, Deputy Governor of the State, and Gboyega Famodun, President of the Party.
Between 1999 and 2003, he served as the deputy governor of former Governor Adebisi Akande, and from 2003 to 2009, he was also the senator representing Osun East.
In 2014, he was challenged for the election of the governor but lost to Rauf Aregbesola.
