Doyin Okupe

Doyin Okupe has revealed his reason for stepping down as from his position as the director-general of the Labour Party (LP) presidential campaign council.

He made this known in a letter on Tuesday following the ruling by a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja that convicted him of money laundering.

The letter was addressed to the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi.

In the letter, Okupe said he would not let his personal travails become a distraction to the campaign team. He also urged the former Anambra State Governor to appoint a “new campaign DG who can continue the assignment with zero distractions.”

The letter read: “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.

“I have invested too much in your campaign to allow my personal travails to become a source of distraction.In the circumstances, I have decided to step aside and plead that you appoint a new campaign DG who can continue the assignment with zero distractions. God bless you and your family.”
