Labour Party Dismiss Doyin Okupe’s Suspension In Ogun

KanyiDaily recalls that the Ogun state chapter of the LP had revoked Okupe’s membership over his failure to pay his membership dues in the past six months which is contrary to the dictate of the party’s constitution.

They also asked the LP National Chairman, Barr. Julius Abure and the party’a presidential candidate, Peter Obi, to obey the constitution by immediately relieving Okupe of his position as Campaign DG and also appoint another DG who should come from the North to reflect federal characters and political balance.

But speaking on Friday at a media briefing in Abuja, LP National Secretary, Umar Farouk said Okupe’s suspension is null and void.

According to him, the Ogun chapter of the party did not follow LP’s disciplinary procedures before arriving at the decision to revoke Okupe’s membership.

Farouk insisted that Okupe still remains a card-carrying member of the party and the DG of the Presidential Campaign Council (PCC).

He said, “The Ogun state chapter has acted outside its constitutional jurisdiction. The party has internal conflict resolution mechanism of handling cases against parties as enshrined in the party’s constitution.

“Therefore, the suspension of Dr Doyin Okupe from the party by the Ogun state chapter is null and void. He still remains a card carrying member of the Labour Party and the director-general of the presidential campaign council.

“The Ogun chapter fell short of contacting the party. Our constitution has enshrined in it conflict resolution mechanism and disciplinary procedures.

“Before you discipline any member of the party, there are certain procedures that you have to follow — by querying and other procedures, and that has not been followed.

“No complaint has been written by the state chapter or his ward to the local government, to even the state, to indict any of the members.

“So, we are not unaware of what is going on, but we know we are telling you categorically that the national headquarters of the party is not aware of they are doing.

“They are doing it on their own and we are going to set up a committee. The NWC will sit down, set up a committee and then appropriate disciplinary action will be taken against the perpetrators in the state excos.”

Meanwhile, Peter Obi has begged Nigerians to donate to his campaign fundraising accounts to help make the “new Nigeria of our dreams a reality.”
