The governor of Osun State, Ademola Adeleke, made the announcement on Wednesday at the presidential rally in Osogbo, the Osun capital.

The rally was attended by the presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar; his running mate, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State; PDP national chairman,  Iyorchia Ayu; and the PDP Presidential Campaign Council chairman, Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom State, among other party chieftains.

“The former deputy speaker has joined the family. He used to be in PDP, but today, he has decided to come and join the PDP family,” the governor said.

Lasun, who was present at the rally, hailed supporters after a terse remark.

Lasun contested the 2022 governorship election in Osun on the platform of the Labour Party (LP).

Adeleke came first in the election; Gboyega Oyetola of the APC placed second; Kehinde Atanda of the Action Democratic Party (ADP) came third; while Lasun came a distant fourth.

He was a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) until February when he resigned from the party after losing the party’s governorship ticket on February 19, 2022.

Lasun was a deputy speaker of the House of Representatives in Osun state from 2015 to 2019.
