Oshiomhole will destroy APC – Reps deputy speaker Lasun
The Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives Yusuf Lasun on Tuesday stated that he will not dump the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He also declared that the national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, will destroy the ruling party.
He spoke on the sideline of a workshop organised for members and staff of House of Representatives Committee on Financial Crimes in Abuja.
Lasun had lost to Adegboyega Oyetola at the governorship primary of the All Progressives Congress, APC, ahead of the Osun election in September.
Oyetola, Governor Aregbesola’s Chief of Staff since 2010, scored 127,017 votes, while Lasun polled 21,975 votes.
The Nation quoted Lasun as insisting that his loss won’t make him leave the party.
“I will not leave the party, I am a member of the APC. Nobody can drive me out of the APC, instead, I will be the one to drive people out of APC.
“But, those who organised that primary know they are going to destroy that party.
“I did not accept the outcome of the primary election. Why would I accept that kind of primary, where a direct primary was conducted in my state, one week after another form of primary was conducted in another state.
“And I hope the chairman will wake up. That chairman is going to destroy that party. The chairman of that party is going to destroy it.
“Let me be specific, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole is going to destroy APC. I have not spoken since that primary, but I am speaking now. Nobody can drive me out of that party. I am a member of APC.
“I am going to stay right inside there, if the party is going to collapse, let it collapse on all of us. If it is going to survive, we are going to survive in it together.” Source: Daily Post
