LP sacks Ogun exco over Okupe’s expulsion

The Labour Party (LP) has dissolved the executive organ overseeing its Ogun State chapter.

The opposition party also terminated the appointment of its acting national publicity secretary Abayomi Arabambi.

The party faulted Arabambi’s role in the expulsion of one of its leaders Doyin Okupe, alongside others over accusation of financial malfeasance.

Another decision by the party is the exoneration of its national chairman Julius Abure, who had faced corruption allegations. The party also passed a vote of confidence on him.

TheCornet had reported that LP’s national body at a press conference it held recently accused Arabambi of sabotage.

Arabambi’s sacking therefore is the denouement of the crisis that rocked its Ogun chapter, leading to Okupe’s expulsion. Okupe and 10 others were accused of not being financial members of the party.

But the national secretariat of the party responded that it granted Okupe a waiver when he joined the party.
