Labour Party Appoints New Director General Of Obi-Datti Campaign Organization1 min read
The Labour Party on Tuesday announced Akin Osuntokun, a former aide to President Olusegun Obasanjo, as the new Director General of Obi-Datti Campaign Organisation.
Osuntokun replaced former DG of the Obi-Datti Campaign Organisation, Doyin Okupe, who announced his resignation in a letter last Tuesday following a Federal High Court ruling in Abuja that convicted him of violating the Money Laundering Act.
Rising from a strategic meeting of the party, which had Peter Obi, 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 Director General.
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.
