This online media platform has gathered that the Peter Okupe Presidential Campaign Organization led by Dr. Doyin Okupe yesterday sent invitations for the official unveiling of the PO Presidential Campaign Board scheduled for Wednesday.

The National Secretariat of the Labor Party, in Abuja, revealed that the party was not formally involved in the planning nor endorsed the programme, Vanguard reports.

An invitation card signed by the Director General of the Peter Okupe Presidential Campaign Organization, Dr. Doyin Okupe, announced that the unveiling ceremony will take place at 12:00 noon, at the Golden Hall, Chelsea Hotel, Central Business District, Abuja.

The invitation carried: “Director General of the Presidential Campaign Organization Peter Okupe, Dr. Doyin Okupe cordially invites you to attend a global pre-campaign press conference and present the Presidential Campaign List…” Signed by Emeka Edmond Onwuocha, on behalf of Okupe.

However, party insiders who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media because “the matter is under resolution” said the party was not a party to the disclosure.

One of the sources said: “As I speak to you, Labor has not approved any list of presidential campaign board members because there are issues that have yet to be resolved.

“Most of us are of the view that our campaign board should be inclusive and have national reach. We must not repeat the mistakes of the political parties we want to replace.

“Our presidential candidate is from the south, the campaign general manager is also from the south. The temporary list I’ve seen excludes most of the north.

“There is no substantial official from the Northeast, Northwest, and North Central, for example.

How can we campaign in these places when we know what we are facing with Atiku and Kwankwaso in the north and Tinubu in the south?

“Even the diaspora commission that was opened earlier is almost exclusive to one section of the country.”
