Raymond Dokpesi: PDP Board Of Trustees Mourns AIT Founder

The Board of Trustees (BoT) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed sadness over the death of the Founder of Africa Independent Television (AIT) and Raypower FM, Raymond Dokpesi.

Dokpesi died while exercising on a treadmill on Monday, May 29, 2023.

Quoting Jack Thorne, Senator Adolphus Wabara, the Acting Chairman of the BoT, said: “Those we love never truly leave us, there are things that death cannot touch”.

Wabara noted that the words  “describe the current feeling of the entire Board of Trustees of the PDP as we remember our dear friend and brother. “High Chief” as he was fondly referred to was passionate about Nigeria."

The Acting Chairman described the late Chairman of DAAR Communication as an advocate of good governance through his commendation of favourable policies and criticism of those unsympathetic. 

“Regardless of his social status, High Chief was the leader of the South-south People Assembly (SSPA) as a result of his deep-rooted interest for the people of his geopolitical zone.

“An avid businessman, media mogul, maritime engineer, and philanthropist, High Chief was a lot of things to a lot of people.

“Whereas our brother and friend has hearkened to nature’s call to the great beyond, he has left lasting legacies that death cannot touch. Forever and always in our hearts, we reflect on these legacies while we mourn your passing.

“We pray God grant High Chief’s immediate family, the good people of Edo state, Nigerians and his friends all over the world the fortitude to bear this irreplaceable loss.

“May his death bring peace, love, harmony and unity to our great Nation,” Wbara added.
