UPDATE: Doyin Okupe is Political Harlot - Labour Party

by Victor Ndubuisi

The conviction of Dr. Doyin Okupe, the director-general of Peter Obi’s campaign organization, for alleged money laundering has not deterred Obi from running for president of Nigeria, according to the Labour Party candidate.

Obi made this statement while speaking with journalists on Monday at the Akwa Ibom State Council Secretariat of the Nigeria Union of Journalists in Uyo.

The labor party’s presidential candidate declared that he was unfazed by the conviction and will carry on with his campaign while allowing the legal system to operate according to its established procedures.

“I am hearing about it (the conviction) just like you. I am still studying what is coming out of the court and everything. I believe in the rule of law. It is not going to demoralise me.


“Today, when I arrived Akwa Ibom somebody asked me why I haven’t been using my aircraft because it has been grounded and all that, and I said to him that nothing demoralises me.

“In my life, I have never stayed where they dropped me, otherwise, I would have been where they dropped me before. This election, if they like, let them do anything about people who are around me. I will get there,” Obi said.

Regarding the notion that he lacks the necessary political infrastructure to win the presidency, he stated that he was determined to overthrow the country’s current political system, which promoted corruption and increased poverty among Nigerians.

“The structure they have today is the structure we want to destroy. It is the structure of criminality. It is the structure that produced 133 million people living in poverty.

“It is the structure that produced 20 million out-of-school children. It is the structure that has made Nigeria surpass India in infant mortality. It is the structure that will destroy Nigeria and we want to destroy that structure,” he said.

The LP presidential contender continued by saying that securing a United Nigeria and rescuing people from poverty would be his top priorities.


He declared that if elected president in 2023, he would work to see the Ibaka Deep Seaport in Akwa Ibom realized.
