Doyin Okupe and 11 others expelled by Ogun chapter of Labour partyDoyin Okupe, the Director-General of Labour Party Presidential Campaign Council, has been expelled by Ogun state chapter of the party alongside 11 others, for violating its constitution. Ogun LP chairman Michael Ashade and the party's secretary Feyisola Michael who briefed newsmen at the end of their meeting on Thursday, December 1, alleged that Okupe and others have refused to pay their membership dues in the last six months, despite numerous notice of debt.  Others stripped of their membership of the party include Abayomi Collins, Hon. Abel Olaleye, Jagun Lookman, Olori Oluwabukola Soyoye, Mr. Gbadebo Fesomade, (former State Treasurer), Mr. Abdulmalik Olaleye (former State Youth Leader), Mr Jide Amusan( former State Publicity Secretary); Mr. Adeshina Wasiu Shojobi (former Asst State Youth Leader); Miss Deborah Adewale (former Senatorial Women Leader Ogun East) and Mr. Olatunde Abolade (former Asst State Secretary). Ashade who accused Okupe of polarising the party in Ogun State with his Peoples Democraric Party (PDP) “dissidents political liabilities who are only using LP to revive their political and financial lifelines", also asked him to provide evidence of any payment in respect of membership dues prior to December 1, 2022. They also asked the national chairman of the party, Barr. Julius Abure and the party Presidential candidate, Peter Obi, to obey the party’s constitution by immediately relieving Okupe of his position as DG of PCC and also appoint another DG who should come from the North to reflect federal characters and political balance. Anchoring their action on Article 9(3)xi of the party’s constitution, Ashade said;  “Only fully registered and financially up-to-date members of the Party shall have the right to vie for office in the Ward Executive, Local Government Area Executive, State Executive Councils and the National Working Committee of the Party or be a delegate to the Congresses and the National Convention.“Article 9(3)iii of our Party’s Constitution states as follows: ‘only members who pay their monthly membership dues at rates prescribed shall be deemed to be bonafide members of the Party. Arrears of dues of up to six months shall lead to forfeiture of membership.’“Despite repeated demands from various meetings I had with Dr. Doyin Okupe in respect of his mandatory constitutional requirements to fulfill membership status, he has failed woefully in this regard with some others to flagrantly disobey the constitution of Labour party.“… In line with article 19(3) of the Labour Party constitutional provision, we declare that Dr. Doyin Okupe, having failed in the payment of his membership dues for the last six months of joining the Party, has forfeited his membership of the Party and no longer fit and competent to continue to act as the DG of the Presidential Campaign Council (PCC).“We hereby notify our National Chairman Bar Julius Abure and Labour Party Presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, that it’s expedient to obey the constitution of Labour party by immediately appoint another DG for the PCC and that should come from the North to reflect Federal Characters and political balance.”  The post Doyin Okupe and 11 others expelled by Ogun chapter of Labour party appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
