You didn’t mean well for the party, PDP tells Okupe

Doyin Okupe

The Ogun State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said the exit of the former Senior Special Assistant  to former President Goodluck Jonathan on Public Affairs Dr Doyin Okupe, from the party would have no effect on the party.

The party described Okupe’s exit as ‘good riddance and a non-issue.’

This was contained in a statement released in Abeokuta on Tuesday signed by the State Publicity Secretary of the party, Bolaji Adeniji.

The party said Okupe would not be missed in any way, as he was not known for any fundamental ideology.


The statement reads in part: “Okupe in his statement noted that the future of the party may not be significantly affected whichever way the judgement of the Supreme Court goes.

“We find this unfortunate because it shows that he is one of those who does not mean well for the party. It is shameful that at a time when relevant stakeholders such as governors, senators, BOT members and other loyal members, have resolved to forge ahead in unity irrespective of the Apex Court decision, an Okupe is a lone voice, steeped in negativity and backwardness.”

On the claim that the party was divided in Ogun state, the party admitted but said the leadership of the PDP was fixed.

“The people are united and working hard towards electoral success in 2019. That some persons decided to form a social group to push the personal ambition of their sponsors, does not translate to factionalisation and we will not allow Okupe to legitimise the aberrant and rebellious activities of some of our members,” it said.
