The expected National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), High Chief Raymond Dokpesi on Wednesday November 22, 2017, visited Gombe, the Gombe State Capital to seek the support of the people of the state to vote for him in the forthcoming National Convention.
While receiving Chief Dokpesi’s campaign team, Mr. Joel Jagafa, the Gombe State PDP Chairman welcomed them saying…”We suffered through the crisis and now it seems we are coming out of it. It won’t be fair to go back into the same crisis again. The party should not be destroyed. You have signed a peace accord amongst yourself as aspirants and you must stand by it”. Mr. Jagafa said.
He appealed to all the aspirants to go to the convention with the spirit of sportsmanship.
Responding, High Chief Dokpesi addressed the Delegates from Gombe State saying that the PDP at the moment needs a fresh blood, a dynamic and vibrant Chairman who can handle the affairs of the Party to victory in 2019 and that he is most qualified to lead the PDP.
The State Chapter Chairman in conclusion advised Dokpesi to ensure that he tackles the issues of imposition and impunity which led the party to crisis in recent past, if he eventually emerges as the National Chairman of the PDP.
