While soliciting for support in Bauchi on Wednesday, Dokpesi was quoted saying:
“I am in the race to change and curtail the PDP crisis that is trying to bring down the party. I feel that I am the best man for the office if PDP is to make impact and win all electrons in 2019.
“I assure that in 2019, Borno and Yobe will be controlled by PDP. These states have produced prominent politicians in the likes of Adamu Chiroma, Adamu Waziri, Kashimawo Imam. Despite that, we have never been in opposition in these two states.”
