Why I flew in same jet with APC gov – Peter Obi’s campaigner, Okupe
Doyin Okupe, lead campaigner of Peter Obi, Labour Party Presidential Candidate in last month’s election, has cleared the air on his recent outing with Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State.
Abiodun, an All Progressives Congress (APC) member, is one of the 11 governors seeking reelection on Saturday.
In a video circulating on social media, Okupe, who was Director-General of Obi’s Campaign, was seen disembarking from a jet with Abiodun.
This had sent a wave of shock on social media as some supporters of Obi alleged that Okupe worked for Bola Tinubu of the APC in the election, while others claimed that he abandoned Obi after the election.

Reacting, Okupe said the governor is his cousin and they are related by blood. He said he had friends and family members across parties.
“Gov. Dapo Abiodun is my cousin. A blood relation. He was in my house 2 days ago with his wife, but I was in Lagos. I called him on his arrival home this evening to thank him for the visit. He then invited me to receive some investors at the new airport in our hometown, Iperu. I was glad to go,” he tweeted.
