A legal practitioner and son of Dr. Doyin Okupe, a former senior special assistant to former president Goodluck Jonathan, Ditan Okupe, has declared support for President Muhammadu Buhari’s second term re-election.
Dr. Doyin Okupe, is a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and an ardent supporter of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar for the 2019 Presidency. He was recently appointed by Senate President and ex-presidential aspirant of PDP, Bukola Saraki, as the chairman of the Media Council for his campaign organisation.
In a letter he sent to the spokesman of Buhari’s 2019 Presidential Campaign, Festus Keyamo, Ditan Okupe volunteered to join the campaign team of Buhari to ensure the president’s victory in 2019.
He described Buhari as the best candidate for the top job, adding that everything must be done to prevent the PDP and its cohorts from returning to power next year.
Meanwhile, responding to the news, Doyin Okupe via his twitter handle said; “Ditan okupe is my Son. He is a very brilliant young man. He went to Kings college, Lagos, Burkinham university, UK and did post graduate in law at d London school of economics.We both have had serious issues in the last 5years. This may be his way of getting back at me. I wish him luck.
“It is impossible to explain intricate and confounding family issues in a single tweet. Please refrain from making judgement on What u know nothing about. What is between Ditan and I, will never be discussed publicly even if it costs me my whole political career. I love him with my whole heart.
“Keyamo is my friend and lawyer. He is still handing a case for me at the supreme court.He called me tonight on his acquaintance with Ditan who also has been trying 4 months to get the contacts of people he considers my political foes, including Tinubu, Kashamu, OGD etc. for him this is his finest hour.”
