Hon. Lasun Yussuff, deputy speaker of the House of Representatives has raised concern over alleged alienation of some members of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Yussuff said that many of those that are being allegedly alienated are grassroots politicians, many of who have made sacrifice for the party, This Day reports.
The lawmaker representing Osogbo/Olorunda/Orolu/Irepodun federal Cconstituency disclosed this in Osogbo, the Osun state capital, at the weekend.
Reacting to rumours that he plans to defect from the APC, he declared that “as far as I am concerned, I am still in APC and I am not planning to leave the progressive party”.
He also disclosed his readiness to support the party and ensure its victory in the September 22 governorship election in the state.
”Irrespective of what happened, we are going to work for the party.
“We are in the position to support the APC and not about the candidate. I thank all my supporters who stood despite the persecution during and after the primary. We would do our best to ensure that APC win the coming election in this state.
“Nigerians should be aware that a lot of party chieftains are being alienated today. I’m not guaranteeing any party. But, we hope that party member will put what happened in the primary behind and work for the victory of the party,” he said.
