Obi Appoints New Campaign DG

The Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, named Akin Osuntokun, a former aide to President Olusegun Obasanjo, as the new Director General of his campaign council on Tuesday.

The former DG of the Obi-Datti Campaign Organisation, Doyin Okupe, resigned in a letter last Tuesday following a Federal High Court ruling in Abuja that found him guilty of violating the Money Laundering Act.

Following a meeting Obi had with members of the National Working Committee and several political candidates of the Labour Party in attendance, the LP National Chairman, Julius Abure announced Osuntokun as the new campaign DG.

Abure described the former managing director of the News Agency of Nigeria as a “worthy and trustworthy” replacement for Okupe.

Osuntokun became the South-West leader of the party after he defected from the Peoples Democratic Party to the LP in August 2022.
