The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has said the conviction of his Campaign Organisation’s Director-General, Dr. Doyin Okupe, over alleged money laundering charges would not break his resolve in contending in the 2023 general elections.
Obi reinforced his resolve while addressing newsmen in Uyo at the Nigeria Union of Journalists, Akwa Ibom State Council Secretariat on Monday, according to the News Agency of Nigeria.
He said he was undaunted by the conviction and would continue with his campaign and allow the due process of law to take its course.
“I am hearing about it (the conviction) just like you. I am still studying what is coming out of the Court and everything. I believe in the rule of law. It is not going to demoralise me.
“Today, when I arrived Akwa Ibom somebody asked me why I haven’t been using my aircraft because it has been grounded and all that, and I said to him that nothing demoralises me.
“In my life, I have never stayed where they dropped me, otherwise, I would have been where they dropped me before. This election, if they like, let them do anything about people who are around me. I will get there.”
