The Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE) has felicitated one of its prominent members, who is a former Osun State deputy governor, Senator Iyiola Omisore, on the occasion of his 63rd birthday.
The NSE in a congratulatory letter personally signed by its president, Babagana Mohammed, lauded Omisore, who he said, with hard work and determination, has emerged a legend in Nigerian politics.
Omisore, a former candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in the last governorship election in Osun State, celebrated his 63rd birthday on September 15, 2020.
An Ile-Ife-born politician, Omisore, who is equally a successful businessman, holds two engineering degrees and a postgraduate certificate from Brunel University London, Uxbridge, United Kingdom.
In January 2013, he was awarded a PhD after he successfully completed his academic programme in Infrastructure Finance from the International School of Management, Paris, France.
As a politician, apart from serving his home state as a deputy governor from 1999 to 2003, he later became a Senator, representing Osun East Senatorial District from 2003 to 2009, within which period he was appointed the appropriation committee chairman at the upper chambers.
Omisore is a philanthropic loved by his people.
