Former Senior Special Assistant on Public Affairs to President Goodluck Jonathan, Dr Doyin Okupe, has resigned as the Director General of Labour Party presidential campaign council.
In a letter addressed to the presidential candidate of the Labour Party on Tuesday, Okupe said it is better not to allow his personal interest distract the campaign of Peter Obi and that of the party, hence his decision to step aside.
“Dear Peter, you will recall that I briefed you yesterday about my travails in seeking justice and clearing my name using the Nigerian Legal System to pursue same.
“I have invested too much in your campaign to allow my personal travails to become a source of distraction.
“In the circumstances, I have opted to step aside and plead that you appoint a new Campaign DG who can continue the assignment with zero distractions. God bless you and family,” Okupe wrote.
