Labour Party Backs Embattled Peter Obi Campaign DG

The embattled director-general of Peter Obi Presidential Campaign Council, Doyin Okupe, has been backed by the leadership of the Labour Party, LP.

Recall that state chapter of the LP had suspended Okupe over allegations bothering on non-financial membership status, political rascality and misappropriation of funds.

The party described the expulsion as unconstitutional and maintained that he remains a bona fide member.

Okupe who recently decamped to the LP has been embroiled in a tussle with some stalwarts of the party, many of whom allege that he has a penchant for intolerance and financial impropriety.

However, the national secretary of the party, Alhaji Farouq Umar, in an interaction with newsmen in Abuja maintained that the party is united ahead of the 2023 general elections.

He said that the party had an internal conflict resolution mechanism of settling cases against party members as contained in its constitution.  

He said, “The suspension of Okupe from the party by the Ogun State chapter is null and void. He remains a card-carrying member of the Labour Party and the director general of the presidential campaign council. The party is solidly united and behind its leadership and the leadership of the presidential campaign council.”
