A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party in Edo State , Mr Raymond Dokpesi , says the party now has a lifetime opportunity to recapture the state because of the crisis rocking the ruling All Progressives Congress .
Dopkesi stated this on Friday during the PDP stakeholders ’ meeting in Agenebode , Etsako East Local Government Area of the state.
The meeting preceded a tour of the zone , which is part of the ‘ AFEMAI declaration’ programme for the party .
‘ Afemai Declaration’ , which is slated to hold in Agenebode on Monday , will feature presentation of awards to deserving members of the party .
Dokpesi said , “ The APC in the state is in tatters , hence a great opportunity for the PDP in the state .
The AFEMAI declaration is one of the programmes of the Edo North senatorial district to rally members of the PDP in the zone .
“ Stakeholders of the party in Edo North will commence a tour to the six local government areas in the zone .
“ The tour will provide an avenue for the leaders of the party at all levels in the zone to interact with the party members at the grass roots. ”
Dokpesi also advocated a party structure that is all-accommodating .
In his remarks , the Chairman of the PDP in the state , Mr Dan Orbih, said the party would use the crisis rocking the APC to win the forthcoming governorship election in the state .
Orbih said history would repeat itself in 2020 as it happened during the PDP crisis which led to the emergence of Adams Oshiomhole as governor.
He said , “ What is happening in Edo State has a historical side of the story. Some years ago , the PDP worked so hard and installed Prof. Osunbor as governor. After he assumed office , he started quarrelling with the party .
There was a big quarrel between Osunbor and Chief Tony Anenih.
“ It was from that quarrel that the APC took over government from the PDP .
Today , history is repeating itself; there is a quarrel between Adams Oshiomhole and Governor Godwin Obaseki.
I want to tell you that from that quarrel , the PDP will come back to power. ”
