Doyin Okupe lambastes Wike over attacks on PDP chairman Secondus
It was reported that Okupe in a statement posted on his Facebook page on Monday, July 12, said that an attack on Secondus by Wike is an attack on the PDP as a whole.
He said it is ridiculous that Wike had to openly castigate Secondus at a public function, adding that the governor only exhibited indecent and irresponsible acts not an act of bravery.
