Dokpesi Declares His Intention to Become PDP Chairman
Chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and media mogul Raymond Dokpesi has restated his intent to become the national chairman of the former ruling party.
He made this known while speaking to newsmen on Wednesday in Abuja.
Dokpesi also accused the Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led faction of forming the Advanced Peoples Democratic Alliance (APDA) as plan B, during PDP’s crisis.
He said: ”The national convention zoned the position of the national chairman to the South and zoned the presidency to the North. And there is no micro zoning; the convention would have said it is zoning to the South West, but the convention in its wisdom did not do so.
”I take full responsibility for the roles I played in the formation and funding of APDA. It was set up as a plan B for the PDP at the peak of its internal crisis.
”I said very clearly that I have a lot of respect for the elders of this party, I have a lot of respect for constituted authority, but they are human beings.”
