Warri – As the National Convention of the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, gets closer, a PDP chieftain, Alaowei Promise (aka General Black) has began mobilisation of party leaders in Niger Delta in support of Chief Raymond Dokpesi for the position of the National Chairman of the party.
Rising from a closed door meeting, weekend, with major PDP stalwarts in Niger Delta at Okerenkoko, Warri South West Local Government Area of Delta State, the ex-militant General, while urging other leaders of South –South to throw their weight behind Chief Dokpesi, revealed that the meeting was held to assess Chief Dokpesi ambition and convince some leaders present at the meeting to support him in the forthcoming PDP national convention.
The PDP chieftain further disclosed that another meeting has been slated for Friday at Bonny-Island in Rivers State, where other major PDP stalwarts would also be briefed on the need to support Dokpesi and build a workforce towards the National Convention of the party.
He noted that with quality and pragmatic National Chairman like Dokpesi the party is sure of taking over the presidency in 2019 from the All Progressives Congress.
