Bode George Commiserates With Dokpesi’s Family

I received with shock the  passing of High Chief Raymond Aleogho Anthony Dokpesi (Ezomo of Weppa-Wanno Kingdom).

According to the family, Chief Dokpesi exited this world on Monday May 29, 2023.

I have been close to him since we formed the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 1998 and I am yet to see a more committed patriot to the Nigeria Project.

A businessman, philanthropist, media entrepreneur,  politician and trusted friend, this respected and accomplished illustrious citizen of Nigeria has left a  legacy of kindness and charity stretched into many homes, institutions and communities.

From the North to the South,   East to West, Chief Dokpesi touched  lives through education, health, philanthropy, media and multiple empowerment opportunities.

A pioneer in the media industry, he set the pace for others to follow in the ownership of private media houses, especially Radio and Television. 

His towering influence in grooming many talented leaders in the media sector is unprecedented.

Through foresight, wisdom, total commitment and dedication to work, he became a reference point in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

I condole with family members, friends and associates of this great Nigerian whose legacy ofpatriotism cannot be forgotten in a hurry.

This beloved husband, father, grandfather and friend to many will be deeply missed by all who knew him.

May God rest his soul.

Chief Olabode Ibiyinka George
