THE candidate of the Labour party in tomorrow’s governorship election in the State of Osun, Rt. Hon. Lasun Yussuff has said that the outcome of the election will shock many people.
This is as the former deputy speaker of the House of Representatives said he is better equipped to govern Osun, noting that he has what it takes to govern the state successfully.
Yussuff who spoke at the LP’s mega rally on Wednesday, attributed his choice of Labour Party to his belief in the dignity of labour that liberated him from the shackles of lack and poverty as an investor.
Reacting to a statement credited to the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu during the party’s mega rally where he taunted labour, Yussuff said such a statement is unbecoming of someone who wants to become the President of Nigeria.
Yussuff, while berating the statement of a presidential candidate of a party, who said ‘labourers will die in vain,’ disclosed that such person is not fit to govern Nigeria and he is not a true son of Oduduwa.
He boasted that LP will spring up surprise by winning the governorship election in the State.
The Ilobu born politician promised to provide better health facilities, create jobs and give loans to women for empowerment.
He called on the people of Osun to come out and vote for him, saying their future lies in the hands of Labour Party for a better Nigeria.
Speaking at the rally, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Mr Peter Obi, also canvassed for votes for the party’s governorship candidate in the tomorrow’s election.
Obi charged the electorate to vote massively for Hon Lasun Yussuff in the election for productivity and dividends of democracy.
Addressing party supporters at the rally where he handed over the party’s flag to Yussuff, Obi described him as a thorough bred politician with intimidating credentials that would deliver on the aspirations of the people of the state.
He lamented what he described as the precarious situation Nigerians have been subjected to by the dominant political parties in Nigeria, adding that it was the right time for Nigerians to set themselves free and vote for a better alternative that can be found in LP.
Obi expressed the need for Nigerians to be shown love and compassion which he said the dominant parties lacked as manifested in the way they treat the youths, the workers and the entire citizens of Nigeria.
On vote-buying, Obi told the electorate to take any money offered to them but vote for the candidates of their choice, adding that the money offered was stolen from government covers and therefore belongs to them.
