Deputy House of Reps Speaker rules out new mega party

Lasun Yusuf, Deputy Speaker, House of Representatives

Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Lasun Yusuf, has predicted that the rumoured formation of a mega political party to defeat APC during the 2019 polls will not materialized.

Yusuf addressing newsmen in Osogbo, said he is speaking from experience, having been in partisan politics for the past 33 years.

For APC leaders seeking to divide APC to pave the way for the proposed mega party, the deputy speaker who represents Osogbo/Olorunda/Orolu/Irepodun Constituency said they are deceiving themselves.

Besides, Yusuf believes that those behind the proposed mega party lack the capacity to defeat APC in any major poll.

He said, “Whoever is trying to divide the APC in a manner that will suggest that another bigger party can come and win election is just deceiving himself. I am a politician, I have been in politics for the past 33 years, I know what it takes to build a party and I know that political parties don’t just spring up overnight.

“APC is made up of ACN, CPC ANPP and a little bit of APGA. Those parties had history before the APC  was consummated. So, APC is new in name but it is populated by older politicians who have been around for long.

“But anybody is forming a mega party now or call it any party, I don’t think they will have that ability to muzzle anybody out of the system. We know ourselves.”
