The National Publicity secretary of the Labour Party (LP), Comrade Arambabi Abayomi has disowned the constituted Peter Obi’s Presidential Campaign Council, saying that the party was not involved in the campaign council composition.
“We are not involved in Dr. Okupe’s mischievous political shenanigans. That is not the party’s programme.”
Arambabi Abayomi was reacting to the constitution of the party’s Presidential Campaign Council which was announced early today, October 12, by Dr. Doyin Okupe, who declared himself the Campaign Director General.
But the party’s publicity secretary said that Dr. Okupe cannot be talking “about our party, our party all the time. Which party?
“Is he the leader of the Labour Party now to announce himself as the DG? It’s an anomaly.
“Who announced the DG of Atiku? Atiku did it. When Tinubu announced his DG, the party did it.
“Where is Peter Obi? Okupe doesn’t know what he is doing. I want to be quoted.
The DG ought to go to the North East or North Central.
“We are not a sectional political party. Our presidential candidate is Pan Nigerian.
“How can we have a presidential candidate from the South and the Campaign DG coming from the same South.” 2023 election:”
Okupe had announced himself as the Director General out of the 1,234-member campaign council.
Clement Ojukwu and Yunusa Tanko were named the secretary and chief spokesperson of the council, respectively.
