Doyin Okupe, the Director-General of the Labour Party’s Presidential Campaign Council, has resigned from his position.
His resignation is linked to his recent conviction for money laundering violations by a Federal High Court in Abuja.
Okupe disclosed this in a letter addressed to the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, on Tuesday evening, and can be seen on his official Twitter account.
- He said in a statement, “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.”
The details of the Letter:
- ” Dear, Peter
- You will recall that I briefed you yesterday about my personal travails in seeking justice and clearing my name using the Nigerian legal System to pursue the same.
- ” I have invested too much in your campaign to allow my personal travails to become a source of distraction.
- ” In the circumstances, I have opted to step aside and plead that you appoint a new Campaign DG who can continue the assignment with zero distractions”.
