Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has said that former Senior Special Assistant to ex-President Goodluck on Public Affairs, Doyin Okupe was a hypocrite.
Okupe had said that Obasanjo remained the “undisputed and authentic” leader of the PDP in the Southwest region of Nigeria.
Obasanjo through an online source (not Greennews.ng), said Okupe “does not know what he was saying”. He stated that he did not apply to join the PDP in 1998, rather, what was given to him was a registration card and his decision to tear the card meant that he was no longer a member of the party.
He also said there was no way he could be referred to as a leader of the party in the South West even if he was still a member.
“I was a national leader of the party for eight years, so, how would I now reduce myself to becoming its leader in the South West,” he said.
Mr. Obasanjo also said Mr. Okupe should be ignored because he was one of those who campaigned for his his expulsion from the party.
