Omisore who spoke to thousands of supporters who thronged the Freedom Park venue of the campaign flag off said the PDP government under him will restore dignity to education in Osun State.
“I am here offering myself for service. I am here to right the wrongs and set our state on sustainable paths”, he said.
Omisore who spoke in Yoruba took a swipe at Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola’s government for his “inhuman taxes, demolition of markets without alternatives, destruction of the state education heritage, the creation of religious crisis in an otherwise harmonious state.”

He promised to reinvent the state through his eight-point agenda that focuses on restoration of the dignity of education, Health, Gender equality and youth development, gainful employment and wealth creation, Agriculture and rural development, good governance, peace and security.
Many PDP bigwigs who graced the occasion were: Former Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, Alhaji Buruji Kashumu, Alhaji Teslim Folarin, former Senate Leader; Alh. Tajudeen Oladipo, Alh. Shuaib Oyedokun, Chief Layi Ogunrinade, Senator Grace Folashade-Bent, Prof. Dupe Olatunbosun, Senator Hosea Agboola, Chief Abidoye Babalola, Senator Olu Alabi, Chief Bose Adedibu and Alhaji Gani Olaoluwa, PDP Chairman in Osun State.
