Chairman of Daar Communications and ranking chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has stated that the South-East cannot produce a candidate that will win the 2023 general elections for the country’s main opposition party.
Dokpesi in a recent interview disclosed that the PDP has to find a candidate from the Northern Part of the country in order to win as presenting a southern candidate will make the elections an uphill task.
He said; “The South East cannot win the election for the PDP that is just the truth of the matter. I don’t beat around the bush; I treat issues as they are and as I understand them. There is no candidate from the Southeast, even I dare say there is no candidate from the South that you put in the North today that will be able to win. It is going to be a humongous challenge.”
“If we are the Nigerians, I want us to be, if we believe in the unity of Nigeria and we also believe in equity, justice, and fairness, there is no reason we should not give it to the South East if the slot is given to the South. However, is there equity, justice, and fairness in Nigeria’s politics? The answer is NO! So, don’t let us over flog the matter. I think that whoever emerges as the president of Nigeria would have to compensate the people of the South East if truly, we want the emergence of the new Nigeria.”
Dokpesi further said it is not wrong for the PDP to zone its presidential ticket to the North.
