The primary election which took place at the party’s secretariat located along Gbongan road, Osogbo, was held under tight security, asmembers of the party across the state voted for their preferred aspirants.
Though, on the ballot paper used for the primary, names of Senator Iyiola Omisore and Otunba Yemisi Oladeji, were boldly written, the duo were not physically present at the premises when the exercise took place.
Officials of both the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and National Orientation Agency (NOA) also witnessed the exercise.

He urged members of the party to reach out to nonaligned people of the state and members of other political parties to convince them on the need to support SDP in the coming election scheduled to hold in September this year.
