A group, Young Professionals in Politics (YPP) has commended Senate President, Dr Abubakar Bukola Saraki for his appointment of former Presidential Spokesperson, Dr Doyin Okupe as the Chairman of Media for Saraki Presidential Campaign Organization.

The group in a statement on Tuesday by its Coordinator, Johnson Olorunfemi, said the appointment is a round peg in a round hole which would boost the presidential campaign of the Senate President in the media.

"Dr Okupe stands out as the most experienced media aide in present day Nigeria having served as a Presidential spokesperson to two former Presidents, former President Olusegun Obasanjo and former President Goodluck Jonathan.

"We believe his long years of experience and outstanding performance in the various capacities he had served as a Presidential spokesperson would be brought to bear and add great value to the Presidential ambition of Senator Saraki.

"We congratulate him and also commend Dr Abubakar Saraki for this right appointment."
