“His son, Raymond Dokpesi (Jnr), had said that the media mogul and politician passed on this morning in Abuja after a brief illness,” the party said.
Lagos PDP condoled family members, including his wives, children and relatives of the deceased media mogul and politician as well as the entire members of the party both in Edo State and Nigeria as a whole, praying to God to give both his family members and PDP members “the fortitude to bear this great loss.”
