Money Laundering: Obi Pens Message To Doyin Okupe



As the former Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) Director-General of the Labour Party, Doyin Okupe, faces a money laundering case, the presidential candidate of the party, Peter Obi, sent him a heartfelt message.

Obi, in the letter, told Okupe that he hopes the embattled party member gets a chance to redeem himself.

Recall that Okupe, yesterday, resigned as the PCC DG following his conviction by a Federal High Court Abuja on Monday.

In his brief communique on Wednesday, the former Anambra State governor said he respects Okupe’s decision to step down as DG of the PPC.

Obi, who described Okupe as his brother, added that the efforts made so far by the revered publicist in seeing that the Labour Party’s message gets to the people ahead of 2023, is highly commendable and will always be reference point for times to come.

The message read, “My Dear Elder Brother Doyin,

“I received your letter offering to step aside in order to avoid any distraction to the good work of trying to forge a new direction for our country, on board of which you have been from inception. It is a decision which I respect.

“The story of this historic effort, which has galvanized millions of our countrymen, particularly our youths, cannot be complete without mentioning your commitment, dedication, and the boundless energy that you brought to bear.

“It is my sincere hope that our legal system will afford you an opportunity to eventually clear your name.”
