Buhari should not ask me source of Jonathan’s money for media – Dokpesi explodes


Chief Raymond Dokpesi, has reacted angrily to the money laundering charges preferred against him by the federal government.

Dokpesi, who is seeking to become the next National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, spoke at the weekend, when his campaign train stopped at Osogbo, the capital of Osun State.

Dokpesi, in his remark, accused President Muhammadu Buhari of using the same tactics he used in 1983 when as military head of state, he “clamped down on the political class”.

His words: “Many of these politicians were jailed 200 to 300 years by Buhari when he came on board. The same thing is playing out today.

“What I am accused of is like someone questioning a hotelier for accepting money from a lodger. How could a hotelier determine the source of the money he is being paid with.

“How will I know source for media campaign of a party?

“I don’t want to dwell much on the subject. The matter is before a competent court of law. At the appropriate time, I will be vindicated.”

Dokpesi, however, promised to ensure that all interests within the PDP are united.

The High Chief disclosed that if elected, he would review all reports of past reconciliatory committees to stop the worrying issue of factions in the PDP.

He pledged allegiance to the Ahmed Makarfi-led national leadership of the party, assuring Osun party faithful that he would work to win the state for the PDP in the next election to hold there.
