Chief Raymond Dokpesi has accused the government of the All Progressives Congress, APC of marginalizing the peoples of the South East.
He stated this during his meeting with delegates from Abia state ahead of the party’s National Convention, billed for August 17, 2016, in Port Harcourt, the Rivers state capital.
Dokpesi noted that the APC has relegated the Igbos since it assumed office over 15 months, adding that it is against the visions of the founding fathers of Nigeria as well as against the spirit and character of the constitution which advocated equality, federal character in appointments.
“Prior to the 2015 general election, they called PDP and our presidential candidate many names but today, do they have any clue of governance? The cost of kerosene, diesel, tomatoes, garri, rice and others are at all-time high,” he said amidst applause from the delegates.
While soliciting for the support of the delegates ahead of the national convention, he said he has the asset, the goodwill and the experience to transform PDP and reposition it for 2019 election so that power will return to Nigerians as envisaged by the founding fathers. The Nation
