…. asks Peter Obi to appoint new campaign DG
This was disclosed in a letter dated 20th December, 2022, which was written by him and addressed to the presidential candidate of LP, Peter Obi.
The former Senior Special Assistant to President Goodluck Jonathan in the letter said: “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 same.”
The resignation of Okupe is coming in hours after the former SSA to President Jonathan was convicted of money laundering by a federal High Court sitting in Abuja on Monday.
However, the spokesman of the Labour Party campaign council, Yunusa Tanko, has assured members of the party that the resignation of Okupe will not have an effect on the party, even as the party continues with its campaigns ahead of the general elections.
