Chief Falana Muritala, the Aare of Ikire, who led other elders to the party’s secretariat in Osogbo, the state capital, described Oyebamiji as a man of integrity.

Muritala said the residents were vigorously rooting for him, with determination to support him to victory.

He added: “We never informed him before taking this step, just as in 1999, when Chief Bisi Akande never had the intention of contesting but his community pushed for him and gave him the needed support.

“We would only implore the people of Osun to support Oyebamiji. He is the only one who perfectly fits into the shoe that would be left behind by the incumbent governor.

“He is a technocrat and an honest man. For the whole community to have done this for him, it means he is loved by all.”

Omoworare visited the party’s secretariat yesterday in Osogbo, the state capital, with thousands of his supporters where he declared his intention to run for the governorship seat.
