Labour Party in Ogun State has expelled the Director General of the party’s Presidential Campaign Council, Doyin Okupe, over alleged non-financial membership status, high-handedness and financial recklessness.
Okupe was on Thursday expelled along 10 others members accused of breaching the party’s constitution.
The party’s publicity secretary said Okupe ceased to be the party member after his failure to meet the mandatory constitutional requirements to fulfill membership status.
He said 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 is no longer fit and competent to continue to act as the DG of the Presidential Campaign Council.
He further highlighted that Okupe and 10 others have run afoul of the article 9(3) sub(iii) and Article 9(3)xi the LP constitution and thereby, ceased to be party members.
The party chairman also accused him of financial recklessness with respect to funds approved for the Ogun LP state on the mobilisation of members for the Oyo State rally held last week at Ibadan.
