Former deputy governor of Osun State, Senator Iyiola Omisore has described as unfortunate, Abdulmumin Jibrin’s attempt to link him to the budget padding scandal rocking the House of Representatives.
Jibrin, in a letter to the All Progressives Congress (APC) had alleged that Omisore is the godfather of Speaker of the House, Yakubu Dogara, the principal actor in the budget padding scandal.

But Omisore, who spoke through his Media Adviser, Prince Diran Odeyemi, said:
“He (Omisore) is not a member of the House of Representatives and there is nothing wrong having friends across the country. So, if he (Omisore) has friends across the country and somebody wants to rope him in in any issue, it is very unfortunate and it is very unfortunate.”
“He (Omisore) is not a member of the APC and everybody knows that. As a senior colleague and former member of the Senate, he relates with virtually all politicians in this country. So, for somebody to accuse him (Omisore) of being a godfather to anybody, it is unfair.”
