The chairman of the Africa Independent Television (AIT), Chief Raymond Dokpesi has said he will not step down for anyone.

Dokpesi is in the race to become the chairman of the opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The AIT boss, in a meeting with members of the party in Ekiti state, said he will not step down for Chief Bode George.

Dokpesi also said George is part of the old school, adding that it is time for youths to take over the affairs of the PDP.

According to the AIT boss’ media team, “High Chief Dokpesi is busy meeting the delegates and outlining his programmes for the reformation and rebuilding of the PDP. He is not considering stepping down for anyone as he is widely accepted by delegates across the country. He remains the candidate to beat.

” As at noon of Saturday, 30th July, we have visited all the states in the Southern region, except Ekiti, which we are heading to now. We will be meeting delegates from the Northern region as from Sunday so High Chief Dokpesi is committed to the campaign and he is confident that he will win by the grace of God and the support of the delegates.”

Chief Raymond Dokpesi was arrested for allegedly receiving funds meant for the purchase of arms from the former National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki.
