I Returned Raymond Dokpesi’s Property To His Children, Despite Our Political Differences – Wike

Raymond Dokpesi, Wike

In a recent statement, Nyesom Wike, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, has mentioned during a recent interview with Channels TV in Abuja that he returned Raymond Dokpesi’s property to his children, despite their political differences.

Wike clarified that although he and the late AIT founder Raymond Dokpesi, were not politically connected, he ensured that he didn’t seize what rightfully belonged to Dokpesi’s family.

Despite Dokpesi supporting Atiku Abubakar’s presidential ticket in the 2023 general elections, Wike competed in the PDP primary and later opposed the party when he didn’t secure the nomination.

“The founder of AIT, the late Dolpesi, you know, was not on good terms politically before he died. But two to three nights ago, his Children came to me and I said look, even though your dad and I were not good politically. I cannot allow this to happen to you people.”

“I called the director of land, called the ES FCDA, called the Director, Urban and Rural planning and said let me go and visit the place. That was on Thursday. I saw houses on top while they were blasting the rock.”

“I said, What is this? Director, you people allocated this rock to people? I said, something must be wrong with you people. Go and get me a memo, I’m going to sign it now.”

“And I cancelled that allocation, this is wickedness. I told Dokpesi’s children, bring your papers, because what is wrong is wrong,” Wike explained.

“The children were shocked. Why do I have to, you’ve seen what is wrong but simply because you don’t have a good relationship you visit the sin of parents on the children.”

“Everybody knows my position that politically I wasn’t in a good relationship with their father. But is that why I should continue when the man in question is not alive?”

“I said, ‘take back your property. I told them, go and withdraw the matter from court. I can’t be here and watch such things happen,” Wike stated.
