Dan Nwanyanwu, the National Chairman and Presidential Candidate of the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP) has said that the controversy generated by the appointment of Akin Osuntokun as the Director-General (DG) of Peter Obi Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) is uncalled for.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that according to him, Osuntokun resigned from the ZLP in August 2022.
Nwanyanwu made this known in a statement made available to this newspaper on Friday.
“Akin Osuntokun resigned from the Zenith Labour Party since August 2022 and therefore no longer a member of our Party
“Prior to his resignation from ZLP he held the ticket as a Senatorial Candidate in Ekiti State.
“As at the time of his resignation, we could not replace him because the window allowed by the Electoral Act for substitution had elapsed.
“We hold no grudges because it is his fundamental right to associate and exit from any organization.
“We wish him well in his new-found greener pasture. We believe this will put to rest the barage of inquiries to us in this regard,” Nwanyanwu said.
