December 01, (THEWILL) – The Ogun state chapter of the Labour Party (LP) has expelled the Director General of the Peter Obi Presidential Campaign Council, Doyin Okupe and 10 others, over alleged non-financial membership status, high-handedness and financial recklessness.

Chairman of the party in the State, Michael Ashade, who announced the party’s decision in Abeokuta on Thursday, said the offences breached the Party’s constitution.

Okupe is from Ikenne Local Government Area of Ogun State. Ashade said he, along with the others, ceased to be a LP member for “failure to meet the mandatory constitutional requirements to fulfil membership status.

He said the offences are against Article 9(3) sub(iii) and Article 9(3)xi of the LP constitution.

Recall that THEWILL had, in its cover story on Sunday, reported the financial crisis rocking the Labour Party.

The report titled, “2023: Confusion Trails LP, Obi/Datti Campaign”, noted that two months after campaigns officially kicked-off, hundreds of support groups “informally and collectively” known as the ‘Obidient Movement’ and the Obi/Datti campaign team are at daggers drawn over financial support.

However, Ashade on Thursday accused Okupe of mismanaging the funds approved for the LP in Ogun to mobilise members for the rally held last week in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.

While notifying the LP National Chairman, Barr Julius Abure, of their decision, they called on Obi to immediately appoint another DG for the PCC from the North.

Okupe could not be reached for his reaction, as calls to him were unanswered.
