A federal commissioner at the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) and former member of the House of Representatives, Hon E.J. Agbonayinma has mourned the late founder of DAAR Communications Group, Chief Raymond Aleogho Dokpesi.
Dokpesi died on Monday, May 29, 2023 from injuries sustained as a result of a fall on his treadmill during an exercise. He was aged 71.
He described Dokpesi as an intrepid business investor, a restless political strategist and a compassionate community leader who affected the lives of locals in his Agebebode town with his philanthropy.
Agbonayinma said Dokpesi's contributions to the human endeavours that he engaged in were quite remarkable.
“He was a genuine friend of mine, mentor, and big brother. He will be sorely missed by all of us who looked up to him for political counsel. My heart goes to his immediate family members, the management and staff members of DAAR Communication, and political associates.
“I pray that the Almighty will console all of us. Adieu, Ezomo. You were a great man. You came; you saw; you conquered. RIP.”
