He will seek the blessing of his royal father, the Okumagbe of Weppa – Wanno Kingdom, His Royal Majesty, George Eghabor before embarking on an official tour.
The PDP has zoned its chairmanship position to the South and elections are expected to hold on August 17, 2016 at the party’s national convention in Port Harcourt.
The Dokpesi campaign office said that the purpose of the tour is to personally meet with, listen to and address all the delegates of the party who shall be voting at the convention.
“High Chief Dokpesi as a point of principle believes that it is only through consultations with all stakeholders and delegates of the party that a national leader who will understand and appreciate the pains and yearnings of the party members across the nation can emerge,” the statement said.
