There are insinuations the Africa Independent Television (AIT) boss, Chief Raymond Dokpesi is eyeing the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chairmanship seat.

The Daily Sun reports that plans have reached the final stage to flag-off the campaign of the AIT boss.

The co-ordinator of the Raymond Dokpesi Campaign Organisation for National Chairman, also confirmed the reports.

Before commencing his bid, Dokpesi is expected to visit the Okumagbe of Weppa – Wanno Kingdom, His Royal Majesty, George Eghabor to get his royal blessing.

The AIT boss will also embark on a tour to meet PDP delegates who will be attending the upcoming convention of the party.

According to Dokpesi, “It is in furtherance of my democratic ideals that returning power to the people must first begin with discussions with the people.”

Meanwhile, efforts to end the feud in the PDP has constantly hit a brick wall, following the insistence of Ali Modu Sheriff that his tenure as chairman of the party will end in 2018.

Sheriff was removed during the PDP convention in Port-Harcourt, Rivers state, on Saturday, May 22, 2016.

The PDP National Convention is slated to hold on August 17, 2016, in Port Harcourt, Rivers state.
