Raymond Dokpesi says “No southern candidate can win 2023 presidential election”


Raymond Dokpesi, former chairman of Daar Communications, says no candidate from the south will be able to win the 2023 presidential election.

In an interview with Daily Trust, Dokpesi said if the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), his party, decides to zone the presidency to the south, it will be fair for the ticket to be given to the south-east.

The PDP chieftain said whoever emerges president needs to compensate the people of the south-east, “if we want a new Nigeria”.

“The south-east cannot win the election for the PDP, that is just the truth of the matter,” he said.

“I don’t beat around the bush; I treat issues as they are and as I understand them. There is no candidate from the south-east, 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 said he is not interested in being the national chairman of the PDP, adding that there are capable people who could lead the party.
