We won’t condone attack Doyin Okupe, Peter Obi Campaign

Must read

The Labour Party (LP) Presidential Campaign Council has said that any attack on Doyin Okupe as the Campaign Council’s Director-General is an attack on the party’s flagbearer, Peter Obi.

Daily Review learned that Okupe was sacked alongside 10 others for alleged non-financial membership status, high-handedness, and financial recklessness by the Ogun State Chapter of the party on Thursday.

The spokesman for the Campaign Council, Dr Yunusa Tanko, while reacting to the purported sack at a news briefing in Kaduna, said that as far as the party and the presidential council is concerned, Mr Okupe remains Peter Obi Campaign Director-General.

He also called the attention of the party loyalists to disregard the purported news which attempts to cause a crisis in the party by some sponsored elements.

Tanko said that the party leadership had already dismissed the sacking of Okupe as he remained a bonafide member of the LP.

Speaking further, he said that those who claimed to have sacked the Director-General lacked the power to do so because they were not the ones that appointed him, adding that the attacked and purported sack of Okupe from the party was aimed at their presidential candidate, Obi.

He alleged that those sponsored elements trying to cause a crisis in the party will not succeed while calling on the party faithful both in Ogun and Nigeria at large to disregard the purported sack, saying it will not hold water as Okupe will remain the DG until after the election next year.

He said, “We want the party members to be steadfast and consistent and believe that this is part of an onslaught against us, they attempted to go after us several times; they denied us the use of their stadium in some states and now they are attacking us internally within the party. We are fighting to rescue Nigeria and Peter Obi is our driver and all attempt to de-market him will not work as God will make him more popular.”
