Dokpesi has backed Tinubu for the 2023 presidency.
Glamtush reports that the Chairman Emeritus of DAAR Communications Plc, High Chief Raymond Dokpesi, said he was supporting Asiwaju Bola Tinubu for President in 2023 because they had been childhood friends.
Dokpesi, a member of the Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party, stated this in an interview with journalists in Abuja on Saturday as part of activities marking his 70th birthday.
He said, “Let me tell you that Bola Ahmed Tinubu, before he became governor, when he was still in Mobil, you know the Headquarters of Mobil is just directly in front of my house in Lagos. As young men, we ate and drank together; we were close friends before he became governor.
“He is a philanthropist; he is kind-hearted. He is supportive of the ordinary person available, and he has brought about bringing hope to people. For 2023, I wish him the very best in whatever he puts his hands on. So, it has nothing to do with politics; it is a matter of the good relationship we have always had and I cherish it and I want to keep it.”
