The executive secretary, Nigerian Christian Pilgrim Commission (NCPC), Rev. Yakubu Pam, has described the late media mogul, the chairman emeritus of the DAAR Communications Plc, Engr. Raymond Dokpesi, as “a unifying factor for this country.”
According to him, Dokpesi was “a very good politician who helped in building the economy of Nigeria, contributed in employment generation for our youth and was able to introduce African content and cultural background in television broadcasting in Africa.”
Rev. Pam said this when he paid a condolence visit to the family of the deceased media mogul Thursday in Abuja.
Pam, who was received by the deceased’s wife, Mrs. Tosin Dokpesi, said Raymond Dokpesi had left “at a time this country needed him most.”
The NCPC boss used the occasion to thank the entire DAAR Communications team for “always showcasing and projecting the laudable activities” of the Commission through the African Independent Television (AIT).
He said AIT had greatly helped to boost the image of the Commission, “especially in the coverage of our pilgrimage activities within and during our pilgrimage programmes outside the country.”
Responding, Mr. Raji Dokpesi, one of the sons of the late media mogul who spoke on behalf of the family, thanked the NCPC boss for the condolence visit and gave the assurance that they would build on the legacy of his late father and ensure sustainability.
