Sack Doyin Okupe, ACN tells Jonathan

Dr Doyin  Okupe, the Senior Special Assistant on Public Affairs to President Goodluck Jonathan on Monday  was in the news as the Action Congress of Nigeria, (CAN) has urged the President to sack him. Alhaji lai Mohammed, the National publicity secretary of CAN asked the president to  give up Okupe to the EFCC  to be prosecuted and the President should apologize to Nigerians for appointing Okupe as his spokesman.

Okupe’s Job was outsourced in desperation to employ an “attack dog” to  take charge of the onslaught  against the opposition parties.

It is learnt that he (Okupe) while serving under the Former President Olusegun  Obasanjo as the chief spokesman of that administration was said to be among the list of those being investigated by the EFCC on the account of a contract running into hundreds of millions of naira obtained from the Benue State Governor.

It said, “The ill-informed decision of President Jonathan to appoint as his chief image maker, a person who needs to be publicly prosecuted for alleged crime has once again confirmed that the Jonathan administration is deeply troubled about its public image and perception as a rudderless government that is lost at sea with no compass.”

“The Action Congress of Nigeria therefore calls on President Jonathan today to fire Dr Doyin Okupe immediately, allow the EFCC to prosecute him and offer Nigerians an unpreserved apology for appointing someone who needs to be publicly prosecuted for alleged crime to interface with and on their behalf.”
