The Chairman Emeritus of DAAR Communications Plc, Raymond Dokpesi, has backed the presidential ambition of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Tracknews Online reports that Tinubu who is yet to officially declare interest in the 2023 presidency has been called on my his supporters to throw his hat into the ring.
Dokpesi, a member of the Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party, said it will not be fair and just should power return to the South in 2023 as the region has ruled Nigeria longer than the north.
Speaking to newsmen at the weekend ahead of his 70th birthday celebration, Dokpesi stated that although he was supporting a northern presidency in 2023 elections, he will back Tinubu if he decides to run.
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.”
