FG Too Desperate To Silence Dokpesi, AIT – Edo PDP



Dokpesi Orbih

The Edo State chapter of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP has flayed the federal administration for being too desperate to witch-hunt Chief Raymond Dokpesi and his DAAR Communications.

The party in a statement issued by its publicity secretary, Mr. Osa Nehikhare said that the Edo born politician and businessman has been regularly “targeted for intimidation, harassment and a Mafiosi style shake down,” in the hands of the federal administration and its agencies.

The party said:

“Since the enthronement of this government nearly four years ago, the FG has continued to use its security agencies and MDAs especially the EFCC, Nigeria Immigration Service, NSA and the ministry of Federal Capital Territory to harass and intimidate Chief Dokpesi, Founder/Chairman Emeritus, DAAR communications Ltd. 

“Edo PDP condemns in very strong terms the demolition of sections of DAAR Communications building by officials of the FCT and the recent illegal detention of Chief Raymond Dokpesi at the international Airport by Nigeria Immigration services (NIS) as  he returned from an overseas medical trip.

“The latest infringement on his fundamental human rights and the  demolition of the buildings inside the DAAR communications compound is a clear sign of the emergence of a ruthless dictatorship that is averse to opposition, freedom of association, free speech and freedom of expression.

“Chief Raymond Dokpesi’s DAAR Communications has been located in its present address for decades. Even when parties are in arbitration, the government has shown its desperation to hurt Chief Dokpesi and DAAR communications as it went ahead to demolish and not wait for settlement one way or the other.  These contrived challenges are not unconnected to the independence of DAAR communications as it allows all shades of political opinion, and this obviously irritates a budding dictatorship.

“Edo PDP hereby calls on all Nigerians to resist and condemn this ugly development.”
