Yesterday, rumours have it that the deputy speaker of the house of representative, Hon Lasun Yusuf have left the ruling APC to the opposition party PDP, but the rumour has been official denied by the lawmaker Osogbo/Irepodun/Orolu/ Olorunda in Osun state at the house of representative.



He spoke in a statement made available by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Wole Oladimeji, in Abuja.

The statement reads: ”The defection story of Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt Hon Sulaimon Lasun Yussuff to PDP is highly misleading and highly uncalled for.

”Deputy Speaker has said it repeatedly that he is a progressive to the core and remains in APC.

”It is the machinations of his political detractors, who are hell bent in maligning his political image that are spreading the rumour.

”A silence does not mean that he has left the party, the rumour recently being spread is by his political detractors.”

Corroborating Mr Oladimeji’s statement, the Chairman, House Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Abulrazak Namdas (APC-Adamawa), said that there was no truth in the reports.

He said it was another ploy by the opposition members to destabilise the ranks of the ruling party in the House and urged Nigerians to discard the report.

”’There was nothing like that. I am telling you authoritatively that the Deputy Speaker did not defect. He has not defected and he will not defect.

”I don’t know what those spreading this rumour wants to gain, but this is a mere wish that won’t come true. The Deputy Speaker has said it severally, at different fora that he belonged here and will never contemplate leaving the party.

”He is a committed man, he has been tested severally and found to be a man of his words.

”Lasun is a member of APC, that, I am telling you authoritatively,” he said.
