The governorship candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in Saturday’s Osun State governorship election, Yusuf Lasun has denied stepping down from the race.
There had been earlier reports from some quarters that Lasun had withdrawn from the contest and is now supporting the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ademola Adeleke.
But speaking with newsmen after casting his vote at PU04, Ward 5, Woru compound, Irepodun local government area, Lasun denied stepping down for Adeleke.
He also lamented the challenges posed by vote buying to the electoral system in Nigeria, saying it’s a major problem.
Also, his spokesperson, Oyewole Oladimeji while reacting to rumours of his principal collapsing his structure for the PDP said, “Hon. Lasun Yusuf did not collapse any of his structure into the PDP. Those that are spreading the news are only hallucinating.
“He is in the race and still hopeful of victory.”
