The director-general of the Labour Party Presidential Campaign Organisation (LPPCO), Dr. Doyin Okupe, has resigned his position in the Campaign Organisation.
Okupe in a letter dated December 20, 2022, addressed to the presidential candidate of the party, Peter Obi, said given his personal travails of seeking justice and to clear his name through the nation’s legal system, and the fact that he has invested too much in Obi’s campaign to allow his personal travails to become a source of distraction, he has opted to step aside and plead that the candidate appoints a new Campaign DG, who can continue the assignment without distractions.
Recall that Okupe was on Monday jailed for money laundering with an option of fine in a case preferred against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
He, however, said he would remain with Peter Obi, the ‘Obidients’ Movement and campaigns till they achieve electoral victory in 2023.
In a post on his verified Twitter handle, Okupe wrote: “It’s time to step aside. But I am with PO and the Obidients and the Presidential Campaigns till God gives us victory in Jesus Name.”
