Chief Raymond Dokpesi has debunked media reports claiming he apologised for the alleged misrule of the Peoples Democratic Party as was widely reported in the media.
In a statement personally signed by the Organising Committee Chairman of the recently concluded Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), national conference, Chief Raymond Dokpesi, has debunked viral media reports claiming he apologised for the alleged misrule of the party.
The AIT boss had been in the major headline news lately for saying that PDP made a mistake by fielding former president, Goodluck Jonathan as its candidate in the March 28 presidential election. He was also quoted to have apologised for the misrule of the PDP in the last 16 years.
The Daar Communications Chairman debunked the reports, saying he was ‘not only an unrepentant admirer, supporter and die hard follower of Jonathan but, indeed, a party member.’
“What I said at the media briefing was that PDP governments were run by human beings who are not perfect and may have made mistakes. I cited the example of the party’s zoning agreement nationwide, which buckled in the face of incumbents who had preferred and pliant candidates and went on to subvert the people’s choice on who to represent them leading to defeats at the polls.
“I tendered an apology to PDP members nationwide for actions like that,” he stated.
He applauded Jonathan’s achievements in many sectors of the economy, saying Nigerians will soon commend Jonathan for his sincerity of purpose in government.
“I call on all PDP members nationwide to discountenance the misleading reports as the party has no apologies to offer anyone for its years of rule at the centre and a majority of the states,” the statement noted.
