Business mogul and Politician, Chief Raymond Aleogho Dokpesi has said that he has what it takes to turn around the fortunes of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) if allowed to take charge of it as the next National Chairman.
Dokpesi said he has been around awhile to know the ingredients needed to rebuild the party and bring it back to winning ways.
The Founder and Chairman emeritus of Daar Communications Plc, stated this as he flagged off his nationwide campaign tour for the coveted seat of the National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from his own home town and ward in Agbenebode.
Dokpesi’s first port of call was the palace of Okumagbe, Weppa Wanno, Dr. GEORGE Oshiapi Egabor (Omoaze 1).
He’s accompanied by close friends, colleagues and political associates from different parts of the country, prominent amongst whom is Senator Kasim Oyofo.
Dokpesi informed the royal father about his intention to take over the leadership of PDP, asking for his blessings as he begins the race for the top job.
“We’re here for your blessings.
“I am confident that by your pronouncement and by the grace of God, the position of PDP chairman is guaranteed”.
After pioneering and successfully running the first private radio and TV stations in Nigeria, Dokpesi, a trained first class Marine engineer is leading the Change that would breath fresh life into his party, PDP, after the upset of losing majority in 2016.
Dokpesi believes he has what it takes to rebuild PDP from scratch, having been around long enough, operating from the backdoor.
Dokpesi now has his eyes on PDP’s top job, sharing the visions of the party’s founding fathers.
But what inspires him more is a desire to reshape and redefine leadership in his country.
It’s the same desire that would now drive him across the length and breath of Nigeria in next two weeks; reaching out to party leaders and delegates and hoping to convince them to leave the party in his care.
