Doyin Okupe, the director general of the Labour Party presidential campaign council has denied the rumour that he has joined the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Okupe who has led several campaign rallies for the Obi-Datti presidential bid described the news as a “wish”.
Reacting via Twitter, Okupe said he would not relent until the evil pillars collapse completely, somewhat referring to the old order in Nigerian politics.
Quoting the headline making the rounds, “After ‘chopping shishi’, Doyin Okupe (D-G of Peter Obi’s LP Presidential Campaign Organisation) returns home to PDP”, Okupe said, “another disinformation and lie from our detractors.
“So they wish but this solid movement will not relent until these evil pillars collapse completely.
Chronicle NG reports that Okupe is a former special adviser on Media and Publicity to former President Olusegun Obasanjo and former special senior adviser on Public Affairs to President Goodluck Jonathan both of whom served as PDP members.
