Former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon Lasun Yusuf, has expressed confidence that he will emerge Governor of Osun State after the July 16 governorship election.
Speaking shortly after his nomination as Labour Party governorship candidate at the Osun Nigeria Union Journalists press centre, Osogbo, Lasun said any politician contemplating rigging the election was looking for trouble.
He disclosed that his choice of Labour Party was borne out of his passion for the masses, urfing party members to work towards getting an average of 120 votes from each unit to make him the next governor.
“Those that said my impact will not be felt in APC are living in mirage because I have been in active politic since for long. I later became the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives.
“If elected, I will focus on subsidising education, farming, infrastructure, health and exploitation of mineral resources for the benefit of the citizens.
“I want to urge our party members to work for my victory because power is not shared freely, I want members to go back to our units and start the work. What I need from you is the ability to deliver between 100 and 120 votes in each unit across the state to win the seat. Osun is made up of 3010 units with an average of 100 voters in all.
“Any politician that is contemplating rigging election in this time, especially, after the EndSARS protest is taking too much a risk and such politicians are heading for doom”, he said.
