Deputy Speaker, House of Representatives, Yusuf Lasun, Monday, said he would not resign his position no matter the pressure individuals or groups would put on him.
Lasun made this known in Abuja while receiving members of Ilobu Development Union, Osun State.
He said that his emergence as deputy speaker followed a transparently conducted election, which he won.
He stressed that those who were suggesting his resignation to resolve any leadership tussle in the House only wanted to reap where they did not sow.
Lasun claimed that Ilobu remained one of the strongest APC holds in the country, explaining that his emergence as deputy speaker was nature's way of rewarding loyalty to the party by his constituents.
Earlier, the Vice Chairman of the group, Alhaji Olayinka Ahmed, had said that the visit was to express their support and solidarity in the wake of pressure from certain quarters on him to resign.
"We are here to give you our maximum support as indigenes of Ilobu.
‘’We do not support any call for your resignation; we know you as one of the pillars of the Action Group in those days.
"Coming from our place, we see your emergence as deputy speaker as a good thing that God has done for us, and we can't let it slip away.
"God has elevated you, and we are proud of it. You also know that you have many things to re-touch in the community," Ahmed told the deputy speaker. (NAN)
