Ajala noted that Lasun is one of the foundation member of the All Progressives Congress who has worked hard to nurse the party.

The statement reads “A broad day light scandal was raised against Rt. Hon. Lasun Yussuff, the Deputy Speaker of House of Representatives and a contestant for 2018 Osun State Governorship in APC political party, that he will soon join PDP. The statement was credited to an online platform traced to PDP Osun.
