Osun 22: Omo Agege Becomes Deputy Speaker Because He rigged Osun Election - Former Deputy Speaker
As the July 2022 Osun State gubernatorial election is drawing near, the immediate former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Lasun Yusuff, has said Senator Ovie Omo-Agege was made the Deputy Senate President as a compensation for the role he played in the disputed All Progressives Congress 2018 governorship primary in Osun State.
He said Omo-Agege was used to edge him out to pave the way for the emergence of Gboyega Oyetola as the party’s candidate for the election which Yusuff insisted the APC lost but was declared winner by the Independent National Electoral Commission.
Lasun Yusuff; who is working assiduously to contest against Oyetola said he wouldn't now bow down this time around, and he would fight till the end.
He said, “Let me tell you all these: The former governor of Zamfara State, Abdulaziz Yari, was the chairman of that primary election committee. On the day of the primary, Yari did not come to Osun.
“That’s left to you journalists to find out why he did not come but let me give you a glimpse; the man knew I was popular but he was instructed to go and do a particular thing but he told them that he had run an investigation and discovered that the deputy speaker was too popular. That’s why Yari did not come to Osun during the APC primary election in 2018.
“The job was undertaken by the current Deputy Senate President. He became the chairman of the committee overnight, and I want to say, if he likes he can controvert this, that one of the reasons Omo-Agege is the Deputy Senate President today was that he was compensated for that job.”
