Ex Convict James Ibori Backs Dokpesi For PDP Chairman
Ex-convict and former governor of Delta State, James Ibori, is back in politics and it appears he is still in the rank and file of kingmakers in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He was a host to chairman of DAAR Communications, Raymond Dokpesi on Friday.
Dokpesi’s visit to Ibori in Oghara was to solicit support for his ambition of becoming the national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
While pledging to give necessary support, Ibori said Dokpesi was enjoying huge confidence of party members because of his record and commitment.
He described Dokpesi as a passionate loyalist of PDP, saying he had toiled for the party.
Also receiving the aspirant this time in Benin City, PDP candidate in the 2017 governorship election in Edo, Osagie Ize-Iyamu, said Dokpesi was a party leader that the state was always proud of.
He said that the man had paid his dues in any area required to be PDP’s national chairman.
Ize-Iyamu assured Dokpesi that as a son of Edo, the party members in the state would pull resources to support Dokpesi, adding that it was wrong for anybody to insinuate that he was or would be rejected in his home.
He commended the aspirant for his matured and peaceful campaigns, adding that he had brought flamboyance to the race to the chairmanship race.
James Ibori was released from prison in December 2016 after a court order. He served four years (April 2012 – December 2016) out of the 13 years he was sentenced to.
