The presidential campaign council of the Labour Party has said it is yet to take a decision on the move by its Director General, Doyin Okupe, to resign his position.
A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, on Monday, had sentenced Okupe to two years in prison over violation of a money laundering act, thereafter, Okupe tendered his resignation letter on Tuesday, to the party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
The Chief spokesperson of the campaign council, Tanko Yunusa, in an interview with Channels TV, said the council would meet before making any pronouncement on Okupe’s resignation.
Yunusa insisted that an individual cannot take such a drastic decision alone and that the council would have to meet to take a collective decision that would be in the interest of all Nigerians.
He said, “We have not officially made any pronouncement in regards to the resignation of Dr Doyin Okupe until when the campaign council meet and take a decision on what to do and how to do it.
“So those particular news may probably be speculations until the campaign council meets. We are not an independent people where one person can take a decision. It will be a collective decision for the interest of the Nigerian people”.
