Osun 2018: You lied, Senate spokesman tells Lasun Yusuf

The Senate Spokesman, Senator Ajibola Basiru, has lambasted the immediate past Deputy Speaker, House of Representatives, Hon. Lasun Yusuf, for shamefully lying that the ruling party rigged the 2018 governorship primary election in the State.

Ajibola, who is the Senator representing Osun Central Senatorial District, challenged the erstwhile Deputy Speaker to come out and justify his claims that the party’s governorship primary was skewed in favour of incumbent Governor Adegboyega Oyetola.

Recall that the former Deputy Speaker had on Thursday and Friday, after obtaining his governorship intent form at the APC National Secretariat, Abuja, featured on a popular radio programme and alleged that he was electorally robbed of the 2018 governorship primary election in the State.

But the Senate Spokesman who called in on the programme, from London, United Kingdom, asked Lasun to stop telling lies and guard his utterances on what befit his personality, saying he (Ajibola) was part of the APC National Committee constituted to conduct the said primary.

Ajibola who averred that all the aspirants were given equal opportunity, fairly treated and given a level playing ground, said none of them was cheated or rigged out.

He challenged Lasun Yusuf to go and analyse the results of the primary council by council for his better understanding, saying this would help to expose him to reality.

“Oyetola won that election fair and square. Nobody is saying Lasun Yusuf should not contest. But he must not disparage the party on whose platform he intends to run. There are 26 wards in Osogbo and Olorunda. He didn’t win in any of the wards. He should not tell lies that he was rigged out,” the senate spokesperson said.
