Defection: APC Suffers Big Loss Ahead Of National Convention




Ahead of the national convention of the All Progressive Congress (APC), the party has suffered a massive loss.

This follows the defection of a former deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Lasun Yusuff.

Yusuff on Friday, March 25, announced his exit from the ruling party but kept mute on which party he is moving to next.

The former lawmaker submitted his resignation from the ruling party at its state secretariat in Osogbo on Friday, March 25, The Punch reported.

The newspaper quoted Yusuf as confirming his exit from the APC when contacted:

“Thanks for the enquiry. It is true. I have left APC. That is all I want to say for now.”

However, reacting to the move, the chairman of the APC in Osun State, Kola Olabisi, said he is yet to be aware of Yusuff’s move.

According to his media aide, the chairman was unaware of Yusuf’s resignation. He was quoted to have said when contacted: “We are in Abuja. The chairman has not been informed that he (Yusuff) has resigned from APC.”

Recalls that Yusuff contested for the APC governorship ticket during the February 19 primaries. He and Moshood Adeoti, the aspirant backed by the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, lost the ticket to the incumbent governor, Adegboyega Oyetola.
