An Osun state Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) youth group under the aegis of Youth Forum For Democracy, has asked Raymond Dokpesi to return the funds which he allegedly collected from Sambo Dasuki.
The youths also slammed him for making what they called anti-peace comments during his visit to the state. According to Punch, the Osun state PDP is currently divided following a flawed party congress. The youths said Dokpesi was not ready to lead the party now, because he has not shown himself to be a bridge builder. They also criticised Dokpesi for only visiting the Iyiola Omisore faction of the party.
They said “We are obliged to inform members of the public on the visitation of Dr. Raymond Dokpesi, who is jostling for the post of the National Chairman of the PDP, especially on the anti-peace, callous and sentimental comment he made.
“He (Dokpesi) was paying a solidarity visit to Otunba Iyiola Omisore, who is his colleague in the EFCC net onDasukigate.
“Dokpesi is a good customer of Senator Ahmed Tinubu, (a national leader of the All Progressives Congress) and he (Dokpesi) could be picked up at anytime. So, he cannot be the PDP chairman because he would cave in at the slightest pressure from Tinubu
“With every sense of modesty, Dr. Raymond Dokpesi should not be contesting for the National Chairman, if he had meant business he should be working on the unity, peace and healing process in Osun PDP.”
The PDP youth group added that Nigerians will only believe the party if people who stole money are not allowed to lead the party.
Raymond Dokpesi also said he will not step down for Chief Bode George.
