resignation letter

The Director General, Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) of Labour Party, Doyin Okupe, has resigned

Okupe in a letter addressed to Labour Party (LP) Presidential Candidate, Peter Obi, cited his recent legal party as reasons for his decision.In the letter, the PCC DG said “he has opted to step aside,” and advised the LP candidate to appoint “a new campaign DG who can continue the assignment with zero distractions.

”Recall that on Monday, Justice Ijeoma Ojuwku of the Federal High Court Abuja, sentenced the former Senior Special Assistant (SSA) on Public Affairs to former President Goodluck Jonathan to two years imprisonment for accepting cash transactions above the N5 million approved by the Money Laundering Act (MLA).

The court however, gave an option of N500,000 fine which should be paid before 4.30pm of Monday.The said counts which are 26 in total include counts 34 to 59.

The judge handed down the sentence after witnesses including former Anambra Governor, Chukwuemeka Ezeife, Mohammed Idi-Farouk, Okupe’s wife and son testified to his good character.Justice Ojuwku earlier found him not guilty on counts 1 to 33 which borders on money laundering, criminal breach of trust and corruption.

The now ex-DG of Labour Party PCC met his fine conditions and was released same day.
