JUST IN: “Osuntokun must resign” – Labour Party in crisis as Pub Secretary attacks new DG

The National Publicity Secretary of the Labour Party, Mr Abayomi Arabambi, has stated that the newly appointed Director-General of the Peter Obi Presidential Campaign Organisation, Prof Akin Osuntokun, must resign from his position

It can be recalled how the former Director-General of the Obi-Datti Campaign Organisation, Doyin Okupe, stepped down from the position after being convicted by a Federal high court in Abuja for Money Laundering.

Following Dr Doyin Okupe’s resignation as Campaign Director-General, the Obi-Datti Ahmed Campaign Organisation on Tuesday named Osuntokun, former Political Adviser to President Olusegun Obasanjo, as the new DG of the Labour Party (LP) campaign organisation.

Reacting to Osuntokun’s appointment, Arabambi in a statement made available to newsmen on Wednesday, opposed Prof Osuntokun’s appointment due to his membership of Zenith Labour Party ZLP.

He saidl “In my capacity as the National Publicity Secretary of Labour Party, I am opposing the announcement of Prof Akin Osuntokun as the DG Labour Party Campaign Organisation because at present, he is the Senatorial candidate of Zenith Labour Party, ZLP, Ekiti State and in the February 25, 2023, National Assembly election. The National Chairman, Barrister Julius Abure, by this treacherous act has compromised the victory of Labour Party and this political rascality will not stand.”

“I am therefore calling on Prof Akin Osuntokun to resign as the DG Labour Party campaign organisation with immediate effect or faces court action within the next five days,” he added
