Crisis In Labour Party As Obi’s Campaign DG Faces Sanction || Gunmen Abduct PDP Chieftain

BREAKING: Labour Party sacks Peter Obi’s DG, Okupe, 10 others
The Labour Party in Ogun State has dismissed the Director General of the Peter Obi Presidential Campaign Council, Doyin Okupe.

Okupe was sacked alongside 10 others for alleged non-financial membership status, high-handedness and financial recklessness.

The Chairman of the party in Ogun State, Michael Ashade, announced the party’s decision in Abeokuta Thursday, saying the offences were a breach of the Labour Party’s constitution.

Ashade said Okupe has ceased to be a LP member for his “failure to meet the mandatory constitutional requirements to fulfill membership status.”

According to him, Okupe had failed to pay his membership dues since the last six months he joined the Party, saying he has therefore forfeited his membership of the Labour Party and he is no longer fit to act as the Director General of Obi’s campaign council.

He stated that the offenses of Okupe amd and the other 10 are against Article 9(3) sub(iii) and Article 9(3)xi of the LP constitution.

Gunmen Kidnap Akwa Ibom PDP Chieftain
Armed gunmen suspected to be cultists terrorising parts of Ukanafun and Etim Ekpo local government areas of Akwa Ibom State have kidnapped a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain in Ukanafun local government area, Hon Ofonime Udodung.

Udodung, a former PDP ward executive member, according to the local residents, was abducted on Tuesday evening at about 7:00 pm by some unidentified hoodlums who wielded AK-47 rifles at Ikot Akpa Ntuen community in Ukanafun council.

A resident, Ime James, who claimed to be an eyewitness, said the criminals laid ambush in a bus a few metres to the place, monitoring their target until the coast became clear for them to swoop on him.

“The former PDP ward executive member was abducted at his business premises opposite the Government Primary School, where he buys palm kernel from petty sellers for onward transmission to the nearby Aba, Abia State, where he in turn sells to big merchants for industrial production,” he explained.
