Conviction : Okupe Resigns As Peter Obi Campaign DG | Citizen NewsNG

 

 

The director general of the Labour Party presidential campaign council, Doyin Okupe, has resigned from his position.

Mr Okupe’s resignation comes hours after he was convicted over money laundering charges by a federal high court in Abuja.

He was subsequently convicted and sentenced to two and a half years in prison for the offense.

But to avoid going to jail instead, Mr Okupe paid the prescribed fine of N13 million.

In a letter addressed to the presidential candidate, Peter Obi, and dated December 20, 2022, Mr Okupe said he has invested too much in the campaign to allow his personal travels to be a source of distraction.

The letter read: “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 opted to step aside and plead that you appoint a new campaign DG who can continue the assignment with zero distraction.”
