Dapo Abiodun Is My Cousin, A Blood Relation - Doyin Okupe Says After He Was Seen With APC Governor

The former director-general of the Labour Party Presidential Campaign Council, Doyin Okupe, was seen with the governor of Ogun State, Dapo Abiodun, on Thursday, March 16, 2023. 

The Labour Party chieftain was seen alighting from a jet with the All Progressives Congress (APC) governor in a video circulating on social media. 

Okupe is a strong ally of the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi. 

The video of Okupe and Dapo Abiodun has generated a lot of reactions on social media, as users have accused him of abandoning Peter Obi. 

In reaction to the development, Okupe revealed that the governor is his cousin and they are related by blood. Okupe added that he doesn't play politics of enmity based on political differences. 

He said, "Gov. Dapo Abiodun is my cousin. A blood relation. He was in my house 2 days ago with his wife, but I was in Lagos. I called him on his arrival home this evening to thank him for the visit. He then invited me to receive some investors at the new airport in our hometown, Iperu. I was glad to go."

"I don't play politics of enmity based on political differences. Political opponents are not enemies but just competitors. Many PDP & APC chieftains are personal friends & long standing associates. Femi Gbajabiamila was special guest of honor at my book launch. His mum is my aunt."
