The Labour Party seems to know how to win the hearts of Nigerians by projecting men of worth for top roles ahead of the 2023 general elections.
One of former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan’s senior aides, Doyin Okupe, has been named as Peter Obi’s running mate.
Okupe confirmed the development to journalists on Friday, June 17, The Cable reports.
Speaking to newsmen on his emergence, Okupe said:
“I stand in as the vice-presidential candidate of the party. Labour party has submitted my name as the VP of the party.”
However, Okupe who is a placeholder for the VP candidate was named in order to meet up with the June 17 deadline issued by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for parties to submit the list of their candidates for the 2023 general elections.Follow us on social media:
