Raymond Dokpesi, founder of DAAR Communications, has stated that he will not step down for anyone in the race for the chairmanship position of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Raymond Dokpesi was reacting to reports that he had withdrawn his ambition in the interest of Olabode George, former vice-chairman of the PDP in the south-west, Dokpesi said he remains the candidate to beat.
He said he has been busy meeting with delegates across the country, telling them of his plans to rebuild the party.
“High Chief Dokpesi is busy meeting the delegates and outlining his programmes for the reformation and rebuilding of the PDP,” read a statement issued on his behalf by his media team.
“He is not considering stepping down for anyone as he is widely accepted by delegates across the country. He remains the candidate to beat.”
The team maintained that Dokpesi has visited sixteen states and will visit the remaining twenty states and the FCT before the convention.
”As at noon of Saturday, 30th July, we have visited all the states in the southern region, except Ekiti, which we are heading to now,” the statement read.
“We will be meeting delegates from the northern region as from Sunday so High Chief Dokpesi is committed to the campaign and he is confident that he will win by the grace of God and the support of the delegates.”
