The crisis building up in Osun state over who takes over from the incumbent governor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola has gotten to a crescendo that the stakeholders are bent in showing their ultimate strength.
Just as many are scheming to produce Aregbesola’s successor, the governor also is putting everything in place to make sure his preferred candidate occupies the Osogbo Government House after his exit.
One of the people who have shown interest in governing the state is Hon. Lasun Yussuf, the Deputy Speaker of Federal House of Representative. But the governor will not hear of that name at all. To him, it’s another plot to replay the Ondo state coup against the elders of the party which he said he will reject in every way.
The govern was quoted to have said he prefers losing the state to PDP than handover to Hon. Lasun Yussuf,
The governor during a meeting of the All progressive congress(APC) Osun state E-Progreessive dinner held at leisured spring hotel osogbo, the executive governor of Osun state Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola openly said he can never and ever handover the affairs of Osun State government to Rt Hon Lasun Yussuf. He said if Lasun Yussuf, the honorable representing Osogbo,Olorunda,Irepodun and Orolu federal constituency think he can have the ticket of the party(APC) through backdoor like Ondo state political permutation he will be disappointed.
