Lasun Yousuf Lambasts Aregbesola...says his influence in Osun politics gone

The former deputy speaker of the House of Representatives, Lasun Yusuf has described the recent outburst of ex-minister of interior, Rauf Aregbesola against All Progressives Congress (APC) and his successor, Adegboyega Oyetola, as empty.

The Nation recalled that Aregbesola who launched his faction named Omoluabi Caucus blamed Oyetola for APC’s defeat during the 2022 Osun gubernatorial election.

Aregbesola bragged that his caucus would make a drastic decision by determining the future of Osun state politically which no one will have any say over.

Meanwhile, Yusuf who abandoned APC for Labour Party in 2022 before joining Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2023 held that Aregbesola is embarking on a futile endeavour by struggling to become a political leader in Osun state.

Yusuf speaking during a political programme, Oro Oselu (Political Talk) on a private radio station, Rave FM in Osogbo monitored by our correspondent stated that the erstwhile minister of the interior could only struggle but he would never become a leader of any political system in the state.

He said: “I can’t be happy if any evil thing befalls Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola. I always wish him good. We were together; we have come a long way; in fact we spent quality time together in politics but what I know is that his terrain of influence is gone in the political firmament of Osun; he cannot be a leader of any political system in the state again.

“Though he tried to ensure that Progressive retain power in Osun while exiting office, what I know is that he is only trying but it is too late to become a leader in the state as he has been struggling to.

 “I said this because I knew that he became a governor by collective leadership. Just as I couldn’t become a governor as I wished so also that it is not easy for him to become the leader of any political system that he wishes to be. For him to be saying he would let people know where he is going before the end of this year, is nothing but a ruse; time has passed by on that; life doesn’t wait for such.”
