The founder of DAAR Communications – owners of AIT, Raypower, Faaji FM and many more, Chief Raymond Dokpesi stepped down from the board of DAAR Communications Plc, to join politics.
The now former chairman made it known last week at the company’s board of directors meeting in Abuja. He said;
“Please permit me to thank the entire members of the board of directors of DAAR Communications, the entire staff, viewers and listeners of all the DAAR communications stable, whether it is Raypower, AIT, Faaji FM and all the SBUs that were created during my tenure. I am going to be involved in the politics of the country and therefore I thought that AIT, Raypower, should be independent and people should not mistake my political aspiration or participation to mean the position of this organization.”
His son, Raymond Dokpesi Jnr., has immediately taken over as the new chairman on Monday Dec. 1 after his father’s retirement that took effect from Friday 28th November 2014.
