Former presidential aspirant, Dr. Raymond Dokpesi, says there is no truth behind reports linking him to the national chairmanship of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

In a statement he released in Abuja on Monday, the media mogul said he preferred to remain a committed party man.

“My attention has been drawn to various media reports linking me to having an interest in contesting for the position of National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) scheduled to hold in October 2021.

“The reports have been widely published in a number of national dailies and circulated in both online and hard copy editions.

“I wish to categorically state that I have no interest whatsoever in the position of National Chairman of the PDP or any other national office in the party.

“While remaining a committed party man, I cannot and will not risk a dent on my integrity, having earlier made my stance clear.

“Members of the public are advised to disregard the report as untrue,” the statement read.
