2023: Okupe Withdraws From Presidential Race, Supports Obi


Ahead of the 2023 general elections, one of the presidential aspirants under the Peoples Democratic Party PDP, Doyin Okupe, has made it known that he is withdrawing from the 2023 presidential race to pitch his tent with the former Anambra State Governor, Peter Obi.

 Disclosing this in the Abeokuta area of Ogun State on Wednesday, He stated, “In aligning myself with the wish of our elders and in the interest of equity and justice, I publicly admit that the 2023 political race must be conceded to the South-East; that is, the Igbos.”

He declared that “I, therefore, now proclaim that I am, as I have said publicly several times, withdrawing from the presidential race and I am declaring my support for the best aspirant not only in Igboland, but in Nigeria as a whole.”

He added that “For the avoidance of doubt, I am not fanning the embers of division, rather I am by this action lightening the torch of unity by establishing political stability on the pillars of truth and justice upon which the Bible tells us that even the throne of the Almighty God is founded.”
