The embattled former Chairman of DAAR Communication, owners of African Independent Television and Ray Power FM, Raymond Dopkesi, on Tuesday sent season’s greeting cards to President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
Dokpesi is standing trial at a federal high court in Abuja on charges of money laundering and corruption pressed against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
In an apparent strategy of seeking respite, a team from his establishment sent a gigantic Eid el Maulud, Christmas and New Year cards to president Buhari and Osinbajo.
The delegation to Aso Rock was led by the current Chairman of the establishment, Raymond Dokpesi Jnr. and included the Managing Director, Tony Akiotu; Managing Director, DAAR News Services, Imoni Amarere; Head, Human Resource, Paulyn Ugbodaga; and Head, Corporate Communications and Kunle Onime.
The Special Adviser to the president on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina and a Director of Information, Justin Abuah received the card for the president just as Senior Special Assistant Documentation in the Vice President’s office, Sesan Adeboyejo also received the one for Osinbajo.
The delegation had earlier sought the presence of president Buhari who was not readily available for them.
The goodwill message on the card read thus: “The chairman, Board of Directors, Management and staff of DAAR Communications Plc, proprietors and operators of Raypower FM, Africa Independent Television and Faaji FM, most heartily felicitate with Your Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari GCFR and family on the occasions of Eid Maulud, Christmas and New Year 2016.”
