Lafia – The Nasarawa State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has endorsed Chief Raymond Dokpesi to become national chairman at the forthcoming national convention of party.

Mr. Francis Orogu, the chapter chairman, stated this when Dokpesi visited the party’s office in Lafia Monday.

Orogu said the aspirant’s blueprint for the PDP would reposition the party towards reclaiming power in 2019.

He added that endorsing Dokpesi was not just the position of the executive of the party, it was also the position of all stakeholders of the PDP in the state.

“All our serving senators, House of Representatives members, Assembly members and former political office holders and elected officials gave us the go-ahead,” he said.

In his address, Dokpesi said, if elected chairman of the PDP, the party would ensure strict adherence to the principle of internal democracy.

He added that all interests in the party would be considered, to return the party to power at the centre in the 2019 general election.
