2023 presidency: dokpesi drums support For Atiku

By Toyin Yusuf, Abuja

The Chairman of DAAR Communications Plc, High Chief Raymond Dokpesi, has solicited the support of North-Central People’s Forum for the presidential ambition of former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar in 2023.

He stated this when he led other Nigerians supporting Atiku’s 2023 presidential aspiration
on a courtesy visit to Forum’s secretariat, in Abuja, on Tuesday.

Dokpesi said that their support for the ex-VP’s presidential ambition was borne out of his laudable achievements, particularly in the areas of governance, youth empowerment as well as ethnic and religious tolerance, among others.

He also told the Forum that a vote of confidence has been passed in Atiku, stressing that Nigerians want him to contest for president in 2023.

“The challenges we are facing today as a country are complicated. The hope of the younger generation is totally dashed. Our hospitals are rather described as graveyards right now. Our schools are closed and we have over 14 million children out-of-school.

“Today, you hear agitations for the dismemberment of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Those agitations are coming from all sections of the country. The economy, I dare also say, is in shambles right now.

“All these put together are created by the type of leadership we have in the country. They are a result of how we have organized and managed ourselves. They were not made by God

“Therefore, looking at the challenges that we have, we conducted some polls across the nation, bearing in mind the circumstances that we are experiencing in the country.

“We asked Nigerians: How do we get out of this quagmire? For me, Nigeria must remain united. There are no problems that are insurmountable, and cannot to be resolved.

“So, if we want to resolve the matter, I am going to call on this Forum to, in the interest of this country and the generations yet unborn to make the necessary sacrifice and view the situation dispassionately and not based on sentiments.

“We have set out the criteria, and have identified the issues, and said that the kind of leadership we need in this country must be a courageous, fair, tested and proven leadership with cognate experience in the management of the affairs of the conclusion, rightly or wrongly, that the person that has the quality to unite Nigeria at this point in time is Waziri Atiku Abubakar.
