Dr Doyin Okupe

The Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) has dismissed as baseless, the allegation by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Public Affairs, Dr Doyin Okupe that the "Yoruba people in the ACN conspired against the Yoruba" to scuttle the election of a Yoruba as House Speaker.
The party said PDP is exposing its own folly by blaming the glaring marginalisation of the Yoruba by the Jonathan Administration on the ACN, saying the PDP has nothing but total contempt for the Yoruba in particular and Nigerians in general.
The party's National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said in a statement issued on Sunday that ACN is not bound by the shifty and phoney zoning formula of the PDP.
