Oyegun, Aregbesola meet Dogara and Lasun
Chief John Oyegun has met with the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Yakubu Dogara, Osun State Governor, Rauf Aregbesola and Yusuf Lasun at the APC national secretariat on Friday,July 24, 2015.
Though there are speculations that the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Yusuf Lasun may have been pressured by his State Governor, Aregbesola, to resign his position to foster peace in the Green chamber, the party chairman has denied the speculation.
Speaking to journalists after the meeting, the national chairman stated that the leadership of the House was summoned to the secretariat as part of the ongoing efforts to restore peace before the resumption of the national assembly.
When asked if or not the party has asked Lasun to step down as part of the new peace deal, Oyegun denied knowledge of that saying 'No, the party has not said such thing, we only called a meeting with the Speaker, his deputy and South-west governors so as to try and sort out the outstanding issues in the House of Representatives. We are still holding consultations and hopefully there will be a breakthrough soon.'
The meeting was the first time a high profile meeting of the political gladiators in APC held since the emergence of Dogara and Lasun as speaker and deputy speaker of the House on June 9, 2015.
