The Kebbi and Katsina Chapter of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Sunday joined Kano, Jigawa, and others to endorse Chief Raymond Dokpesi for National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, ahead of National Convention billed for August 17, in Port Harcourt, the River State capital.
In a statement by the media team of Raymond Dokpesi Campaign Organisation, Dokpesi’s first endorsement came in Katsina after he met with delegates and party leaders at the party secretariat in Katsina.
While soliciting support, Dokpesi said if he becomes the next National Chairman, he would ensure that power remains in the North in 2019.
He however said the position would be opened to all the three zones in the North; promising level playing field for all.
A total of 117 delegates from Katsina are expected to vote at the convention in Port Harcourt; making it the largest contingent across the country.
The State Chairman, Salishu Magigari while welcoming the media mogul wasted no time endorsing him for deeming it necessary to visit.
He expressed confidence in Dokpesi’s quality; pointing out that his competence and ability to lift the party to greater height is not in doubt.
Earlier, Chief Raymond Dokpesi said: “They will come with government money to deceive you. If you collect it; you would have betrayed the North.
“I pledge that if you make me the National Chairman of our party, I will ensure that the decision of the party zoning Presidency to the North is upheld”
“I’ll work with you; and I’ll stand by you to defend the mandate you freely give”, he said.
