ACN's call for Okupe's sack irresponsible, hypocritical - SW PDP

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the South-West has described call by the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) for the sack of Dr. Doyin Okupe, Senior Special Assistant to President Goodluck Jonathan as irresponsible and hypocritical.

It said the party does not have any moral right to talk on corruption or any crime in Nigeria.

PDP Zonal Publicity Secretary, Hon. Kayode Babade said in a statement issued in Ibadan today said that the ACN must first fumigate its own house to get rid of grossly corrupt and criminal minded elements in its fold before seeking to clean other peoples' house.

The PDP maintained that it was laughable that the ACN that kept silent over the trial of the Speaker of Lagos State House of Assembly, Mr. Adeyemi Ikuforiji, who was accused of stealing over N7 billion belonging to the House and is standing trial before a Federal High Court in Lagos for stealing and laundering N500 million, can be asking Mr President to sack Dr. Okupe over an unsubstantiated allegation of fraud.
