“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. “Your brother, Peter Obi.”
Premium Politics on Tuesday reported that Okupe tendered his letter of resignation as the DG of the Labour Party Presidential Campaign Council following his conviction by a federal high court in Abuja over money laundering for which he paid the N13million option of fine to avoid a 2 year jail term.
