The Chairman of DAAR Communications, Raymond Dokpesi, has insisted he would not step down in his ambition to contest for the national chairmanship position of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Dokpesi will be contesting against former Ogun State governor, Gbenga Daniel, among others when the election is held at the PDP National Convention on Saturday in Abuja.

The Director of Dokpesi’s campaign organisation, Idea Eguabor, clarified that his boss had not succumbed to political pressure as perceived in some quarters, adding he had also not agreed to drop out of the race.

"Nothing can indeed be further from the truth. Chief Dokpesi is not only a front runner but remains the aspirant to beat at the convention grounds on Saturday.

"We urge teeming members and party delegates to disregard and ignore such cheap and diversionary antics aimed at causing ill wind in the PDP.

"Chief Dokpesi will not step down and those who wish so are advised to redirect their energies to campaigns that will benefit their aspirants rather than dissipate positive energy in negative direction," he said.

Dokpesi has gotten the backings of Delta State governor Ifeanyi Okowa, most PDP delegates in Edo state and convicted and former governor of Delta James Ibori.
