The All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state of Osun has described as laughable the purported defection of the former Deputy Speaker of the Federal House of Representatives, Hon Lasun Yusuf from the APC, noting that his defection is “good riddance to bad rubbish”.
The former Deputy Speaker had yesterday submitted his resignation letter to the APC party Secretariat, Ogo-Oluwa Osogbo.
The party said Osun APC remained unperturbed, and will not lose sleep over the defection of Hon Lasun from the APC, adding that, in the last 7 years, he added no value to the development of the party.
This reaction was contained in a statement issued from party’s Directorate of Publicity, Research and Strategy and signed by its Director, Kunle Oyatomi Esq and made available to Newsmen on Saturday in Osogbo, the state capital.
The Osun APC said the party will not, in any way, feel the absence of Hon Lasun Yusuf, adding that his defection is a blessing to the party.
“It is pertinent to tell the public what they already know that Hon Lasun Yusuf is a “noisemaker and paperweight politician” whose mind has left the party since 2018 after he contested for governorship primary election and failed and he has consistently been failing to win elections, even in his Poling Unit”.
“Our party will show Hon Yusuf that truly, he has no electoral value because, when he worked against the party, APC recorded so much electoral victories and the next election won’t be an exemption”.
The party therefore, urged members of the APC to stay away from enemies of the party who portray themselves as party men but they are worse than those in opposition
Osun APC therefore, enjoined party members and supporters to be resolute in their support and “canvass for new loyal members into the party as our doors are widely open, for whoever wants to join.
