Why Doyin Okupe, LP Campaign Council DG Was Expelled By Party
The Labour Party Presidential Campaign Council Director-General, Doyin Okupe, has been expelled by the party in Ogun State. The report has been attracting mixed reactions from members of the public, especially as this is coming about three months before the election. And some people have been wondering why the party in Ogun State decided to expel Okupe at this time.
The dismissal of Okupe in Ogun was disclosed by the state chairman of the party, Michael Ashade, in Abeokuta, the capital of Ogun State.
One of the reasons given for Okupe’s dismissal was allegation of financial recklessness with regard to the funds that were approved for the Ogun State Labour Party for the mobilization of members for the rally that took place in Ibadan last week.
In the report which was made by Sahara Reporters, Ashade also accused Okupe of not paying his membership dues for the last six months since he joined the Labour Party, and that because of that, his membership has been forfeited, and he is no longer fit to be the Director-General of the party’s Presidential Campaign Council.
In addition, he also accused Okupe of polarizing the party in Ogun State.
He said – “Okupe has polarized the party in Ogun State with his crops of PDP dissidents and political liabilities who are only using Labour Party to revive their not only irredeemable dead political and financial lives, but has successfully stolen all that is available in LP.”
He said that the Labour Party in Ogun State will use every lawful means to ensure the dismissal of Okupe from the party.
