The Speaker of the House of Representatives Rep. Femi Gbajabiamila has expressed sadness over the death of the chairman and founder of the AIT/Raypower FM, High Chief Raymond Aleogho Anthony Dopkesi.
Gbajabiamila described Chief Dopkesi as a patriotic Nigerian who would be sorely missed.
He said he received the news of the media entrepreneur with rude shock, noting that he has left a vacuum in the Nigerian media industry as the pioneer of private radio station in Nigeria.
The Speaker recalled how Chief Dopkesi combined his media entrepreneurship with politics, which he said provided the late owner of AIT/Raypower FM the opportunity to appreciate leadership in the country.
Gbajabiamila sent his heartfelt condolences to the AIT/Raypower family, people and government of Edo State, especially the people of Weppa-Wanno Kingdom, where Chief Dopkesi held the traditional title of Ezomo.
While praying for the repose of the soul of the late media mogul, Gbajabiamila prayed to God to give his family the fortitude to bear the loss.
