Investigation: How Political Interests Divides  OYSF In Ile Ife

By Sodiq Lawal

As 2019 elections is getting closer, it has been confirmed to our correspondent that majority of youths under Omisore Youths Support Forum(OYSF) in Ile Ife have divided the association.

Our correspondent who gathered from the last meeting held on Thursday by the aggrieved youths, observed that the youths have eliminated the association and established Ajilesoro Youths Support Forum(AYSF) to gather support for the candidate of Peoples Democratic Party for Ife Federal Constituency, Hon. Ajilesoro Abimbola Taofeek.

Findings revealed that the youths quited OYSF due to the alliance between Senator Iyiola Omisore and the All Progressive Congress(APC) in the last rerun governorship election in the state, where they alleged Omisore of working with the APC.

It was learnt that Omisore had called on the members and executives of OYSF to join him to work for APC but majority of them rejected it and formed a coalition with Ajilesoro.

However, apart from the fact that the aggrieved youths rejected Omisore’s offer on the ground that they cannot work for APC, it was further learnt that the youths rejected to support Omisore because they were not given enough money by Omisore to cater for the members of OYSF for their efforts during the last governorship election.
