Just in: Doyin Okupe Dumps PDP [Read Details]
Chief Doyin Okupe, a national chairmanship aspirant of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Senior Special Assistant to the Immediate
past President Goodluck Jonathan, has resigned from the party.
He announced his resignation earlier today, June 2nd, 2017.
In confirmation of his Facebook post, Okupe sent a statement to the Punch, asserting his resignation.
The statement reads thus:
“It is with deep regret that I publicly
announce my resignation from the People’s Democratic Party.
“It has to be public because the PDP no longer exists in my ward as a single unified party.”
“It is no longer new that the PDP has been embroiled in a fratricidal internal crisis brought upon it by itself.
“Its current direction is difficult to discern and I am convinced that even when the much expected judgement from the Supreme Court is given, the future of the party is not likely to be significantly affected whichever way the judgement goes.”
Aside this, the Ogun state-born politician had earlier dropped a note on his resonation via Facebook under the title “It is time to say GOODBYE TO PDP.”
