The Spokesperson for the Labour Party presidential campaign council, Kenneth Okonkwo, has described the two years jail term by a Federal High Court in Abuja, to Doyin Okupe, the embattled Director General of the campaign of the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi as a political ambush.
Okonkwo stated this while speaking in an interview with Arise Television on Wednesday.
Recall that Okupe resigned his position as the Director General of the Obi-Datti campaign on Tuesday after he was sentenced to two years imprisonment for receiving over N200 million cash from former National Security Adviser (NSA) Sambo Dasuki.
Okupe conveyed his resignation in a letter to his principal, the presidential candidate of the party, Peter Obi.
Reacting to Okupe’s judgement, Okonkwo said, “We do not have anything to worry about, because the best they have gotten is that the man made an honest mistake. But look at PDP, we have President Olusegun Obasanjo, who happened to be the only principal that Atiku Abubakar ever served as a political appointee said Atiku is one of the most corrupt human beings on earth. The only principle that can appraise him.
“Wike said Ayu is the most corrupt National Chairman on record. He said he collected many billions of naira and that Atiku is aware of it. Has he resigned?
“So, when you talk about comparison, the worst of Labour Party is still better than the best of the PDP and APC combined,” he said.
