“The dumping of PDP by @doyinokupe is a big loss for our party. I spoke with him today and heard real reasons. We may lose more people soon,” Fani-Kayode tweeted.
NAIJ.com had previously reported that Okupe on Sunday July 2 announced his exit from the PDP through a long message on his Facebook page.
Okupe in his Facebook message said: “It is with deep regret that I publicly announce my resignation from the People’s Democratic Party. It has to be public because the PDP no longer exists in my ward as a single unified party; it was when I joined it.
“My resignation is based on periods of long introspection and some of the following reasons: 1. It is no longer news that the PDP has been embroiled in a fratricidal internal crisis brought upon it by itself.
“Its current direction is difficult to discern and I am convinced that even when the much expected judgement from the Supreme Court is given, the future of the party is not likely to be significantly affected whichever way the judgement goes."
