President Tinubu mourns Dokpesi


Nigerian President, Bola Tinubu, has mourned the loss of Raymond Dokpesi, founder of DAAR Communications and African Independent Television (AIT), saying he would be missed so much.
Dokpesi died on Monday at an unknown Abuja hospital.
Tinubu’s condolence message was included in a statement made by his media officer, Abdulaziz Abdulaziz, in Abuja.
The president lamented the media mogul’s death as a major loss to Nigeria’s media business and the country.
He said, “The death of High Chief Raymond Dokpesi is a blow to the media industry where he has played pioneering roles in private broadcasting. His pacesetting investment in the industry is an inspiration to many who come after him.
“The history of the evolution of the Nigerian media industry will be incomplete without prominent mention of Dokpesi and his giant footprints on the media landscape.
“I express my sincere condolences to the management and staff of Daar Communications and the family of the late media entrepreneur for this monumental loss,” he said.
SaharaReporters had reported that a source said Dokpesi died while exercising on the treadmill in his home.
His son, Raymond Dokpesi Jnr., also confirmed the development in a statement on Monday.
Dokpesi was in the news in January 2023 when he was released from the custody of the police in the United Kingdom.
