As part of continuation of his nationwide campaign to intimate members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of his chairmanship aspiration, Chief Raymond Dokpesi yesterday stormed Calabar, the Cross River State capital.
While in Calabar, Dokpesi commended Governor Ben Ayade for providing purposeful leadership in the state.
His words: â€œI commend you for your impactful style of governance which has transformed the socio-econmic landscape of the state in such a short stay in power.â€
While urging the governor to remain resolute and steadfast in his vision to liberate the state through his lofty projects, the Chairman Emeritus of Daar Communications called on Cross River delegates to the December 9, convention to rally round someone who will support the governor in actualising its dream by attracting the desired federal government presence to the state as they converge on Abuja to vote for a national chairman of the party.
According to Dokpesi, â€œonly a man who understands the vision and dream of the state will contribute to its developmental strides as well as support its growth,â€ even as he solicited their votes because he shares in their vision.
Responding, Governor Ayade, who described Dekpesi as a man of courage, integrity and committed member of the PDP whom he believed would succeed because of his resourcefulness, urged members of the party to use the convention as a veritable platform to unite the party preparatory to 2019 general election.
Ayade lauded Dokpesi for his courage in establishing Daar Communication which he noted has contributed significantly in showcasing the nation positively to the outside world to salvage its battered image.
