Doyin Okupe Joins Accord PartyThe former senior special assistant on public affairs to ex-president Goodluck jonathan, Doyin Okupe has joined the Accord party.

Okupe, who recently left the people democratic party (PDP), went to his facebook page and said he would soon announce his formal entry to the party in Ogun state.

He said;

“Following various consultations with political associates, family and friends I have decided to formally join the Accord Party. My decision is based on deep reflection on who I am and what I want from politics.

“To me politics does not begin and end with winning or losing elections. It’s not about big or small parties either. It’s also beyond personal relationships or endearing associations or friendships.

“To me, Politics is about service to the people, policies and ideologies that will serve the best interests of the greater majority of the society, forthrightness and accountability, honour and integrity.”

The former presidential also added he would like to work with young and upcoming politicians in the country.

“I am not desperate to be anything anymore but I am desperate to find and work with other Nigerians especially our young and vibrant upcoming politicians, to establish a political incubator to breed a new generation of leaders who will do things right, maintain high ethical standards and abhor greed, avarice, selfishness and impunity.”

Okupe however said he joined the party that will publicly state its position on the nation’s crises.

“I want to belong to a political party that will be able to publicly state its position on troubling national issues like, requests for self determination by a section of the country, resource control, federalism and restructuring, religious intolerance, atrocities of Fulani herdsman, unequal standards in national university admission policy, and many more.

“Any political party that does not have an openly stated position or stand on these issues is a mere association of elites coming together only to feather their own nests or at best a deceptive political contraption put together by a few to seize power for a few and for the benefit of a few.”
