The Lagos State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described the death of the Chairman, DAAR Communications and Founder of AIT and Ray Power FM, Chief Raymond Dokpesi, as rude shock, great loss and painful to the party.

Dokpesi, a Chieftain of PDP and strong ally of Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar reportedly died at the age of 71 in Abuja on Monday.

His Son, Raymond Dokpesi Jnr announced his father’s death in a statement on Monday

Reacting, PDP’s Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Hakeem Amode, who condoled with the family of the deceased, staff and management of DAAR Communications and the party in a statement in Lagos, said that PDP would miss the late chieftain of the party.

Amode said: “The death of the founder of AIT and Raypower, High Chief (Dr) Raymond Dokpesi, got to us in the Lagos State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as a rude shock.

“We are amazed by the news of the death of the successful businessman and a strong member of our party, who died on Monday.

“The death of Dr Dokpesi has definitely created a vacuum that would be difficult to fill, but we are consoled by the fact that he left a good legacy as a committed member of the party.

“The death of Dr. Dokpesi at this time, when our nation is passing through its worst moment, is regrettable, and he will surely be missed by all of us.”

According to him, the party is now left with the memories of Dokpesi, whose contributions to the development of PDP are immeasurable.

“Those of us in the Lagos State chapter of the PDP will particularly miss him and we pray that God will grant him eternal rest.

“We however, wish to express our condolence to his family members, including his wives, children and relatives.

“We also wish to condole with the entire members of the PDP both in Edo State and entire Nigeria.

“Our prayer is that God will give both his family members and members of the PDP the fortitude to bear this great loss,” the spokesman said.

High Chief Dokpesi pioneered private broadcasting in Nigeria and was until his demise a chieftain of the PDP.
