While speaking on why his first son, Ditan joined the Buhari's campaign team, Okupe says he could be because of their differences. He said;
''Ditan okupe is my Son. He is a very brilliant young man. He went to Kings college, Lagos, Burkinham university, UK &did post graduate in law at d London school of economics.We both hv had serious issues in the last 5yrs. This may be his way of getting back at me. I wish him luck.''
