Babangida Declares Support For Dokpesi’s PDP Chairmanship Bid
Ibrahim Babangida, former military president, on Thursday established that the businessman turned politician, Chief Raymond Dokpesi has his support for the position of the national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
According to NAN report, Babangida made this known when Dokpesi paid a courtesy visit to his residence in Minna.
He urged party faithful to use the convention to uphold the visionary ideals of the founding fathers of the party based on democratic tenets.
“Democracy is about choice and only people with vision, courage and strong commitment to the unity of the country such as you can lead the PDP.
“Politicians should always have a vision for a united and strong Nigeria as a shining example of democracy in Africa,” Babangida said.
“Therefore, I have blessed High Chief Dokpesi to pursue the noble objective of contesting for the post of national chairman of PDP,” he said.
Dokpesi has insisted to continue pursue his bid to vie for the position despite his pending case with the anti-graft agency of EFCC.
