My father never bidded for any arms contract during Jonathan's govt- Dokpesi's son

Raymond Dokpesi Jnr, the son of embattled chairman of DAAR group, Chief Raymond Dokpesi has released a statement distancing his father from the controversial $2.1 billion arms deal scandal.

According to a statement released titled "The Continued Detention of High Chief Raymond Dokpesi by The EFCC on Allegations of Money Laundering" which was signed by him, he said his father was only contracted to develop a Multi Media Strategic Development Support Project to promote and project the achievements and highlight the challenges of former president Jonathan's government. He says in the statement that his father is not a contractor with the Ministry of Defence and does not supply arms. The full text of the statement after the cut...




THE CONTINUED DETENTION OF HIGH CHIEF RAYMOND DOKPESI BY THE EFCC ON ALLEGATIONS OF MONEY LAUNDERING
1. It has become very imperative that following an article published in the Nation Newspaper and reprinted in other online and social media, that we provide more clarification on the current detention without trial of Dr. Raymond Dokpesi by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC in Abuja over allegations of Criminal Conspiracy and Money Laundering.
2. In the first place there is no iota of truth whatsoever that Dr. Dokpesi had a hand in any transaction with the former National Security Adviser regarding the purchase of arms, locally or internationally. This falsehood has become commonplace as his detention is constantly being associated with what has generally become known by the media as the $2.1 Billion US Dollars Arms Deal Scandal.
3. We will like to make it abundantly clear that Dr. Dokpesi's DAAR INVESTMENT & HOLDINGS COMPANY LTD, initiated a proposal to the Presidency of Former President Goodluck Jonathan proposing a Multi Media Strategic Development Support Project to promote and project the achievements and highlight the challenges of his government whilst demystifying false information gleefully circulated by the propaganda machinery of the then opposition party.
4. The proposal was submitted to the Former President in person by Dr. Dokpesi and his team in the presence of the Former Vice President and the Former National Security Adviser at the Presidential Villa, Abuja. We must further emphasize that the proposal had absolutely nothing to do with the Peoples' Democratic Party (PDP), nor the Presidential Campaign Council (PCC).
5. We understand that this proposal was thoroughly studied, approved and paid for by the Presidency through the office of the National Security Adviser which to the best of our knowledge has multiple budgetary sub-heads including for the promotion and propagation of information to sustain and stabilize the government and its administration.
6. We are still at a loss as to why a Federal Government that claims to have been popularly elected only about six months ago, will embark on a wide scale propaganda, misinformation and brazen falsehood just to achieve its objective of decimating its perceived political opponents and supporters of the previous government's administration.
7. High Chief Raymond Dokpesi remains a law abiding and consummate patriot who has served his fatherland to the best of his ability with Zeal, Zest and oftentimes a very infectious sense of patriotism.
8. For the avoidance of doubt, Dr Dokpesi has never applied nor bidded for a contract for the purchase of arms. Nor has he ever been registered with the Ministry of Defence for the similar objective of engaging in the supply of Arms for the Government. Unfolding events will soon prove irrefutably and unlike what fictious stories are being fed to the media as published by The Nation Newspaper on Friday 4th December 2015.
9. We urge the Buhari-led APC Government to rigorously investigate all political and economic crimes thoroughly before embarking on a media trial and sentencing even before the law courts of Nigeria have an opportunity to adjudicate.
10. Our democracy must grow on all fronts but more so under the rule of law which remains the bedrock of any democratic system.
Signed
Raymond Dokpesi Jnr.
For the Dokpesi family

Why did your father collect the campaign money from Ministry of defence? There's no logic in there. It would have been better if the money was given to him by pdp or ffk.

1. I wonder why electoral campaign& adverts would be paid for through the office of the Security advicer. Please what's the connection between electoral campaign and National security as it concerns this scenerio.
Someone please school me, let me understand.

2. I've always known that Buhari would come for Daar communications; after all the smear campaign they televised against him.

JR, you seem to be lost in your analysis. Nobody is saying your father applied for or carried out any arms deal. What is being said is that your father received payments from a source designated for payments for arms deals and trade.

Why did the NSA pay for media services? Why??????????????????

Please ask your father to tell you the truth.

This guy is a fool. When did the office of the National Security Adviser become responsible for media issues? What's the duty of the ministry of information and national strategies? GEJ administration is nothing but pepper and akara kind of administration where anybody does anything. Very unfortunate for a so called PHD holder running things like this. Oga Dokpesi jnr, your papa go tey for that cell o. Deal with that......fool

Thank God GEJ didn't enter you people would have wasted innocent souls.. Go and sit down and let t:he courts decide your father's fate there no witch hunting here is one political party will arrest other party. GEJ failed to that doesn't not mean PMB will do.

This guy is hopeless as his father and has just made the case against his Father stronger. He claims the so called proposal 'initiated" by his father has nothing to do with PDP but was intended to counter the so called negative propaganda by "the opposition". Please tell that to the marines as Nigerians are not stupid. Everyday for the thief one day for the owner! Dopesi should man up and take his punishment on the chin once he has his date in court and he should also refund the money or his property should be seized. To stamp out this corruption in this country people lie this should serve a long jail term. I recall that just before AIT was owing their workers salaries? Abi na part of the strategy bi dat? How can you guys sleep well knowing that money that was meant for purchase of arms to protect our soldiers was misapplied and used for frivolous things while our gallant soldiers were being killed? Haba what a wicked set of greedy and heartless idiots. I pray that God will visit all those who stole the nations money with serious punishment and they should all serve jail terms.

The son is right, a private business approached the govt with a business proposal. The proposal is approved. Someone in GEJ's govt pays! How does DAAR communication know the internal working of the funds that was paid to him? If the NSA pays the funds, dats not DAAR's business...

okpesi collect this kind huge amount and yet he no wan pay workers.its so bad that even his workers are jubilating over his arrest.even you Babs have never posted about him not paying his workers but since his arrest you no let us hear word..my own be say if he's guilty he will face the law,if not am sure he would have learnt his lesson..let him have a conscienc and pay them..Dokpesi Jnr pay your workers and stop using their salaries to be celebrating unecesary birthdays for your generation..put your sef in their shoes.

Why does Dokpesi have to get involved in arms deal? And we wonder why this country has gone to the dogs? Based on what is he even consider a prospect in an arms deal?!

Anonymous said...

Dokpesi Jnr, you were trained in a more civilized society than Nigeria and you are still defending your father in this way. It's a pity. N2.1 b was meant for promotion and propagation of information to stabilize Nigeria and money was paid by the NSA. NSA was both the Minister of Information and Finance? NSA was not asked to be paying for subsidy on fuel then which was most important to Nigerians. Remember, your father was also fingered in the bomb blast that occurred in 2010. Your father's cup is full biko.

concerned citizen said...

Is his father into arms business? Do they have any proposal to that effect that he is applied for any of such contract? I think there's an iota of truth in what he is saying

If I were him, I would not be too hasty in putting up a defense for my dad. EFCC should be allowed to conclude it investigation and charge Dokpesi to court if culpable. 2.1 billion naira is a lot of money to give away to a single individual without due process. what was the role of the national assembly in approving this huge sum of money for media services? na wa for this country.

Why is Buhari's govt bias? Same thing they are accusing Dokpesi for,was done by Ameachi and Oshomole but no body is arresting them because they spent their state money on Buhari's campaigns,so it is justified. Buhari if you can't arrest every corrupt individual, then don't arrest any. Simply leave the past n face the future. I still haven't seen change in any aspect.

Anonymous said...

But Buhari's election campaign was funded with edo,rivers, and lagos states money. So what is the difference?
