Why I’ll drop my Osun 2022 governorship ambition – Ex-Reps deputy speaker

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

Yusuf had on Saturday at the grand finale of Ilobu Day celebration, declared intention to contest next year’s governorship election.

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

He said, “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.”
