President Goodluck Jonathan on Saturday led the campaign rally of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate Iyiola Omisore in Oshogbo Osun State. Vice President Namadi Sambo, PDP Chairman, Adamu Muazu, party leaders Bode George and Ondo State Governor Olusegun Mimiko accompanied President Jonathan to the rally.

?I urge support for the PDP gubernatorial candidate, cast your vote for him and Mr. Omisore will not let you down,? President Jonathan campaigned.
Mr. Omisore is the major challenger of the incumbent Rauf Aregbesola of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Earlier, Mr. Sijuwade called for a minute silence in memory of the souls of departed heroes.
The traditional ruler named such heroes as the late Obafemi Awolowo, Bola Ige, Ado Bayero, the Emir of Kano and Igwe Okagwe, the Obi of Onitsha among others.

Mr. Sijuwade described Mr. Omisore as a humble person, saying that he ?stepped aside? for former Governors Bisi Akande and Olagunsoye Oyinlola when he prevailed on him.

He said it is only God who has the power to appoint the president, governors, and traditional rulers. On the unity of the country, Mr. Sijuwade said ?without unity the country?s progress will remain very slow?.

He appealed to traditional rulers to join hands with the government to rid the country of insurgency.
?With their support, Boko Haram insurgency and other activities militating against national growth will become a thing of the past.?
He said the South-West zone and particularly Osun needed more federal presence in line with the president?s transformation agenda.
Mr. Sijuwade also called on the government to continue to give critical sectors ? agriculture and aviation ? a boost.
He solicited the support of the president for the revival of cocoa farming, completion of Ile-Ife water dam and the expansion of Ife-Ibadan expressway.
