      Suspension of Doyin Okupe from Labour party by Ogun state chapter is null and void – LP National Secretary 

      deemed null and illegal the party’s Ogun state chapter’s decision to expel Doyin Okupe, the director general of the presidential campaign council.


      Speaking to reporters on Friday, December 2, Umar Farouk claimed that the Ogun chapter of the party did not adhere to the LP’s disciplinary procedures before deciding to withdraw Okupe’s membership.




      He said;




      “The Ogun state chapter has acted outside its constitutional jurisdiction. The party has internal conflict resolution mechanism of handling cases against parties as enshrined in the party’s constitution.


      “Therefore, the suspension of Dr Doyin Okupe from the party by the Ogun state chapter is null and void. He still remains a card carrying member of the Labour Party and the director-general of the presidential campaign council.


      The Ogun chapter was unable to get in touch with the party. Our constitution contains provisions for disciplinary actions and dispute settlement.


      There are specific steps you must take, such as inquiring and other procedures, before you can reprimand any party members, and such steps have not been taken.


      “No complaint has been written by the state chapter or his ward to the local government, to even the state, to indict any of the members.


      “So, we are not unaware of what is going on, but we know we are telling you categorically that the national headquarters of the party is not aware of they are doing.


      “They are doing it on their own and we are going to set up a committee. The NWC will sit down, set up a committee and then appropriate disciplinary action will be taken against the perpetrators in the state excos.”
