Yusuf Lasun Yusuf Lasun

Former Deputy Speaker, House of Representatives, Yusuf Lasun, has disclosed to the Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, conditions that must be met in order for him to drop his governorship ambition.

He had on Saturday at the grand finale of the Ilobu Day celebration, made known his intention to contest next year’s governorship election.

But addressing a meeting convened by a caucus within Osun APC called ‘Opomulero Osun’ on Sunday, November 14, 20201, Yusuf stated that he would give up his ambition if the part's leadership requested that of him, but said all stakeholders must be involved in the process that would lead to the emergence of the APC candidate for the poll.

“I am an establishment person. I can give up my governorship ambition if the leadership of the party insists, but with a caveat, all stakeholders must be properly carried along without excluding anyone.

“This will give everyone the impetus to work for the party’s success,” he said.
