FORMER Director-General of the Labour Party Campaign Council, Doyin Okupe has congratulated Prof Akin Oshuntokun on his appointment as his replacement.

Reacting, Okupe in a tweet on his official Twitter handle, expressed optimism that Oshuntokun would deliver.

According to Okupe, the new DG had been a committed and foundation member of the Obidient movement.

The tweet reads: “I received the news of the appointment of my brother, bosom friend, strong ally and confidant, Prof Akin Oshuntokun, as the new DG of the LP Obi-Baba Ahmed campaign organisation.

“Oshuntokun has been a committed and foundation member of this great movement from the start. I wish him well.

“He served as political adviser to former President Olusegun Obasanjo, and was also a director of the presidential campaign of the then ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2011.”
