Dr. Doyin Okupe, a former Senior Special Assistant on Public Affairs to former President Goodluck Jonathan, said on Sunday the Labour Party would field a Muslim from the Northern part of the country as running mate to its presidential candidate, Peter Obi.

He stated this on his verified Twitter handle.

Okupe was picked as standing running mate to the former Anambra State governor last Friday in a bid to meet the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) deadline for the submission of lists of presidential candidates and running mates by the 18 political parties in the country.

He wrote: “My first statement in the interview with the media was that I was standing in as the VP candidate and elsewhere I explained that it’s an open process till the substitution closes. Labour Party will eventually field a Muslim from the north. End of story.”
