2019: Okupe’s Son Joins Buhari’s Campaign Train

Son of former media aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Ditan Okupe, has joined Buhari’s campaign train ahead of 2019 general election.

In his letter of 8th November to the Director, Strategic Communications, 2019 presidential campaign, Festus Keyamo (SAN), Okupe said, “It is my opinion that there is no better candidate, aside from the current President, to take this great nation forward, into its predestined place. I also believe that this great nation must do everything possible to prevent the opposition party and it’s cohorts back into the corridor of power to safeguard the future of this great nation.”

It would be recalled some days ago, Obasanjo’s son also joined Buhari’s campaign team despite his father’s strong opposition to the re-election bid of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Reacting to the movement through his Twitter handle, Doyin Okupe said his son’s decision was an attempt to spite him because of the differences between them. He therefore wished him luck in his decision.
