Ex-National Chairmanship aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the proprietor of DAAR Communication, High Chief Raymond Dokpesi has denied reports that he is defecting to the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
According to him, APC has not done enough to pull people away from PDP.
He added that the recent defection of the 2016 governorship candidate of the PDP, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu to the APC will not ruin the party’s chances in the upcoming 2020 governorship election.
Dokpesi also said others that defected with Ize-Iyamu even had to be promised several positions to make the move.
His words, “There have been a number of alleged defection from the party. People who have said to have gone with Pastor Ize-Iyamu.
“It became clear that individuals left for their personal reasons. The majority of the people are still with the PDP.
“It is most unfortunate. I came down to reassure the people that there was no iota of truth that I have left and abandon the PDP. I am still fully in the PDP. There is nothing that impresses or attracts me to the ruling APC. I don’t think that membership of a party is based on what I want but on certain well-grounded principles and views about how society should be governed, how society should be managed and how to bring about development and progress to the people generally. I have not seen those values in the APC. I have no cause to go to the APC for now.”
“Ize-Iyamu was the candidate in 2016. There is another younger more brilliant more vibrant in the PDP. The 2012 candidate left. The candidate for 2098 left the PDP. We will have other candidates in 2020.”
