Okupe: Crisis Brews As Labour Party Dissolves Ogun State Exco


Labour Party Chieftain Billed To Anchor Peter Obi Rally In Owerri Slumps And Dies

The crisis in the Labour Party (LP) took a turn for the worse as the acting National Publicity Secretary, Abayomi Arabambi was on Friday suspended for anti-party activities.

Arising from an emergency National Working Committee (NWC) meeting in Abuja, the party’s National Secretary, Umar Farouk, said that various allegations by Arabambi against national officers of the party “remain unsubstantiated and a figment of the imagination of perpetrators.”

The party also sacked its Ogun State Chapter chairman and dissolved the state executive for refusing to answer to summons by the NWC over the allegations against the Director General of its Presidential Campaign Council, PCC, Doyin Okupe.

Okupe’s Suspension

Naija News recalls that the Ogun State chapter of the party had earlier suspended Okupe and others for allegedly  breaching the rules of the LP.

However, the spokesperson of the party’s Presidential Campaign Council, Dr Yunusa Tanko, while speaking in a press conference said that certain individuals outside the LP were trying to destabilize the party.

He said, The Presidential Campaign Council are affirming this position that Dr Doyin Okupe is not sacked by anybody as the Director General of the Campaign Organisation of the Labour Party Presidential Campaign Council,” 

“So, the rumour going around that he has been sacked is unfounded and cannot be affirmed because you cannot sack somebody you did not appoint.”
