Former President Olusegun Obasanjo lashed out at his former aide, Dr. Doyin Okupe for describing him(OBJ) as the leader of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the South-West.
Obasanjo described Okupe as a hypocrite who does not know what he is saying.
OBJ said “Okupe should be ignored because he was one of those who campaigned for his expulsion from the party.”
Okupe on his Facebook page, said “Baba Obasanjo still remains the undisputed and authentic leader of the PDP in the South-West. The fact that he tore his membership card is not tantamount to resignation from the party. An action he has not undertaken to date.
“Tearing of the membership card though a very negative action is undoubtedly a knee-jerk reaction to certain unacceptable or intolerable happenings withing the party which can and will be redressed.”
Obasanjo who spoke to Premium Times on telephone, said Okupe does not know what he is saying.
“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.
