Labour Party Presidential Campaign DG, Okupe Steps Down
Abuja The Director General of the Labour Party Presidential Campaign, Doyin Okupe has resigned.
His decision is to enable him pursue his corruption case in Court.
Reacting to the judgement earlier through its Media Officer, Diran Onifade, the Labour Party Presidential Campaign Council (PCC), confirmed that Okupe had paid N13m fine handed to him by the court.
He said as the party that respects the rule of law, its officials will obey court judgments promptly.
Onifade, however, said appealing the judgment is a personal decision Okupe and that the PCC cannot influence that.
Although the source declined to mention possible replacements, there are feelers that a former presidential aide, Akin Oshuntokun is tipped as a front runner to replace Okupe.
