Chief Raymond Dokpesi, a
National Chairmanship aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has
said that regaining power in 2019 must begin with emergence of a
vibrant  National Working Committee (NWC) at the December national
convention. Dokpesi stated this when he
met with the Executive and leaders of the Federal Capital Territory
(FCT)  chapter of the party in Abuja t on Saturday.

He
said that the party needed vibrant leaders willing to go to the field
and work for its success and to correct its past mistakes.
Some
of the mistakes, according to him, include imposition of candidates,
impunity and lack of respect for the party’s constitution.
“We
are today facing the beginning of the journey to contest the
presidential election with All Progressives Congress (APC). The contest
starts with electing vibrant NWC.
“It starts with a leader that is committed to this party, that can sacrifice for the party in order to ensure our success.
“It
is not with people who want to be the chairman for the sake of being
chairman or ego of the office, but ready to go to the field and work for
the party.
” A chairman who is ready to ensure that PDP reclaims the chairmen of the FCT Area Councils,” Dokpesi said.
He
sympathized with FCT indigenes over lack of adequate representatives in
the government, while he pledged to work for their interest,
compensation and the general interest of the non indigenes residents,
when elected.
Dokpesi, who said that all
the eight PDP chairmanship aspirants were eminently qualified for the
position, urged delegates to carefully vote for a candidate who would
maximise new opportunities for the party.
“You need to look at our records and see who has suffered more and contributed to the party.
“If you vote, vote for the progress of PDP, vote for the rejuvenation, rebranding of PDP, we need to rebrand the party.”
He advised PDP FCT leaders and executive to continue to give their support, loyalty, commitment to the party.
Mr Baba Kachalla,
the Director-General of Dokpesi campaign organisation, described the
aspirant as one of the people who contributed to the development of the
FCT, by relocating headquarters of his media outfits from Lagos to
Abuja.
He said if given the mandate 
Dokpesi would not only pursue the cause of PDP regaining power in 2019,
but also the causee of FCT indigenes.
The PDP FCT leaders and executive, pledged their support and votes at the national convention for Dokpesi.
The acting chairman of PDP FCT, Alhaji Ibrahim Biko, who said that the PDP FCT had no problem as it was united, prayed for the success of Dokpesi.
He said that the executive of the party had given Dokpesi their words and would act accordingly.
A former House of Representatives Member, Mr Isa Dobi also promised that PDP FCT would deliver a block vote for Dokpesi.
Also a former Kuje Area council Chairmanship Aspirant, Mr Sheba Tete also described Dokpesi as a capable hand that the PDP leadership could be trusted in.
He said that: “You have sacrificed a lot for the party and we are all witnesses to all you did for the party especially in 2015.
The PDP FCT Women Leader, Mr Victoria Madaki also described Dokpesi as the most qualified aspirant for PDP Chairmanship position.
We will give our vote in block and also canvass for vote from other states for you.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

on

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

Reno Omokri ‘s tweet reads:

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
@MBuhari
