The Money Was For Campaigns - Dokpesi

The Money Was For Campaigns - Dokpesi

Raymond Dokpesi

The chairman of Africa Independent Television (AIT), Raymond Dokpesi, who was arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) yesterday, December 1, has explained what the N2.1 billion he collected from the former National Security Adviser (NSA), Malam Sambo Dasuki, was meant for.

According to Sahara Reporters, Dokpesi in a statement signed by the management of DAAR Communications Plc, made it known that around 2.00pm yesterday, the Ag. chairman of the EFCC, Alhaji Ibrahim Magu, invited him to the commission through a phone call. When he got there, he was requested to, “shed more light on some payments that were made to him through the office of the erstwhile NSA to the former President, Malam Sambo Dasuki.”

Dokpesi explained to the EFCC officials that ”the N2.1 billion that he collected from the former NSA was payment for publicity and media political campaigns during the 2015 general elections.”

According to the signed statement, Dokpesi “made his statement on the various media exposures and campaign transactions which were dutifully carried out based essentially on contractual obligations/relationship.”

The statement however did not go deep into how the office of the National Security Adviser turned into the cashier office for the payment of campaign expenses and the source of the money.

The former NSA’s family and friends have reportedly abandoned him since the arrest and commencement of the retired Colonel’s trial over the arms deal while some of his associates have been picked up by the anti-graft agency as they are looking forward to getting the truth about the arms deal.
