In the resignation letter addressed to Peter Obi barely 24 hours after he was convicted of money laundering charges, Okupe said he took the decision because he has invested too much in your campaign to allow his travails to become a source of distraction.

“It’s time to step aside. But I am with PO and the Obidients and the Presidential Campaigns till God gives us victory in Jesus Name.”
