The Chairman of DAAR Communications, the owner of Ray Power FM and AIT, Chief Raymond Dokpesi has vowed to pursue his political ambition to become the Chairman of PDP to a logical conclusion.
Dr. Dokpesi was unbending, yesterday, in his quest, vowing that the contest would go to the convention ground irrespective of the resolve of the South West caucuses.
Dismissing claims that he was stepping down, Dokpesi in a statement issued by Mr. Ide Eguabor, Chairman of the Dokpesi Campaign Organisation said: â€œIt has come to my attention and that of the Raymond Dokpesi Campaign Organization that speculations are rife to the effect that our principal, Dr. Raymond Dokpesi has succumbed to political pressure and agreed to drop out of the race for the office of the national chairman of our great party (PDP).
Nothing can indeed be farther from the truth. â€œChief Dokpesi is not only a front-runner but remains the aspirant to beat at the convention grounds on Saturday. â€œWe urge teeming members and party delegates to disregard and ignore such cheap and diversionary antics aimed at causing ill wind in the PDP.
â€œChief Dokpesi will not step down, and those who wish so are advised to redirect their energies to campaigns that will benefit their aspirants rather dissipate positive energy in negative direction.
â€œThe national convention is the first effort by the PDP since inception at entrenching an internal democratic process that will deepen our democracy.
â€œLet him who is running behind in this race remain behind or run faster than the man in front. The impunity and imposition of the past have long gone out of fashion. â€œThe delegates will decide every contestantâ€™s faith, and we should all agree to abide and accept the convention decision. Only that the process must be free, fair and credible,â€ the Dokpesi campaign said.
