The National Chairman and Presidential Candidate of the Zenith Labour Party, Chief Dan Nwanyanwu says the controversy generated by the appointment of Mr Akin Osuntoku as DG of the Peter OBI Campaign Orgsnization is unnecessary.
Chief Nwanyanwu made the clarification in a statement on Thursday, saying Akin Osuntoku resigned from the Zenith LABOUR Party since August 2022 and therefore no longer a member of our Party.
According to the ZLP chairman, as at the time of his resignation, the party could not replace him because the window allowed by the Electoral Act for substitution had elapsed.
“We hold no grudges because it is his fundamental right to associate and exit from any organization.
“We wish him well in his new found greener pasture.
“We believe this will put to rest the barrage of inquiries to us in this regard,” Nwanyanwu said.
Before resignation from ZLP, Osuntoku held the ticket as a Senatorial Candidate in Ekiti State.
