As campaign train of Chief Dokpesi moves and tour the states to canvassing for delegates’ supports, he didn’t stop to mention the errors that might still lead to another crisis maintaining that the chairmanship race of the party should be made opened and not zoning.
Chief Raymond Dokpesi on Friday described as unfortunate, the decision of Peoples Democratic Party leaders from the South to zone the position of the party’s national chairman to the South-West.
He said the action was a repeat of the same mistake that he said led the party to where it was today.
Dokpesi stated this in a statement by his Media Aide, Mr. Omor Bazuaye, in Abuja.
Dokpesi was also said to have taken his campaign to the North-West.
He was said to have told delegates in Kano to do the right thing by voting their conscience at the August 17 national convention in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
”Leaders of the South met and decided to micro-zone to the South-West. These are the same things we did that brought the party to its knees,” he was quoted as saying.
“I have come here pleading and begging that if I become National chairman it is me and you that would be chairman.”
