Doyin Okupe Speaks After Emerging As Peter Obi’s Temporary Running Mate

The director of Peter Obi’s presidential campaign, Doyin Okupe has reacted after emerging as the temporary running mate of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party.

News360 Info had earlier reported the Labour Party on Friday announced Okupe as a placeholder to beat the submission deadline of the Independent National Electoral Commission.

The former presidential spokesman while speaking on Channels TV after the announcement said he is ‘standing in’ as the vice-presidential candidate of the Labour party.

Okupe in his statement said, “Choosing the vice-presidential candidate is an electoral process and it does not stop until the process and schedule ends.

“INEC allows you to present a candidate and later on, if you want to substitute, you may do so, if necessary. But if it’s not necessary, you may as well continue.

So the present situation is that we believe that this Labour party government that is essentially going to be about young Nigerians. Those of us who have been part and parcel of our sordid past must be prepared to pay the sacrifice, even the personal sacrifice, of allowing a situation we can lift our youths to positions of power and authority.

I am willing to put down my back, so that young people can stand and come to the top.”
