The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun state says it will not in anyway be affected with the defection of the former Deputy Speaker Federal House of Representatives, Mr Lasun Yusuf .
This is contained in a statement issued from the party’s Directorate of Publicity, Research and Strategy and signed by its Director, Kunle Oyatomi Esq.
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 Mr Lasun from the APC, stressing that, in the last 7 years, he added no value to the development of the party.
The party claim it would 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”.
Osun APC urged members of the parry to stay away from enemies of the party who portray themselves as party men but worse than those in the opposition
It enjoined party members and supporters to be resolute in their support and canvass for new loyal members into the party saying its doors are widely opened for whoever wants to join.
