Okupe Has Not Formally Joined Our Party – Accord
There have been reports that former Peoples Democratic Party chieftain in Ogun state, Doyin Okupe has joined Accord Party.
Well, it seems the gist is not entirely true. Although it looks like a decamping that is simply caught up in due process.
The Ogun State Chairman of Accord Party, Adeyemi Alli, said at an interactive meeting with the party state executives in Ago-Iwoye, Ogun on Friday that Okupe has not joined them formally.
Okupe had released a statement on July 18 on his official Facebook page stating his reasons for leaving the PDP.
But here is what Accord Party has to say about that announcement.

“The attention of the party has been drawn to persons claiming to align with the Accord Party known as the ‘Ogun Integrity Group’ allegedly belonging to Okupe.
“While we are open to having more people join us in propagating our vision, due process has to be followed.
“We are not stopping anyone from joining Accord Party so far such persons or groups meet our conditions of membership.
“As we head into the 2019 general elections, one thing that endears us to the electorate is the organisation within the party and the peace we enjoy among ourselves.
“The Accord people remain united and are working hard towards electoral success in 2019 for the benefit of every Nigerian,” he said.
The chairman said party officials nationwide have been canvassing for support and mobilising resources for the party across all political zones in the country ahead of the 2019 elections.
