Chief Raymond Dopkesi, Chairman of Daar Communications, owners of the Raypower FM and African Independent Television, called President Buhari a ‘parasite of Nigeria’ as he spoke to journalists in Abuja. The media mogul who narrated his ordeal after being released by the Nigeria Immigration Service, also alleged that the Federal Government has been intimidating Peoples Democratic Party members. Dokpesi who called President Buhari a parasite, was detained by the Department of State Services upon his return from Dubai on Friday.
Speaking to newsmen he said; “I do not suspect foul play. I can state categorically that this is the handiwork of the Buhari-led Federal Government. There is nothing I can do. I am in court already. I am a citizen of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. It is on my sweat that I go for treatment.
“Buhari, who says he is the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, unfortunately in the history of Nigeria, has been a parasite of Nigeria. He has never created any employment (opportunities). I have contributed to the growth and development of this country.
“The Federal Government is on an intimidation ploy and they are after everybody in the PDP. I’m undaunted. In fact, the more they do this, they more I’m defiant and the more I’m resolute to stand for the good of the ordinary people of Nigeria.”
The Lagos based businessman who accused the NIS of planning to impound his passport, further disclosed that after he returned from medical treatment abroad, he returned his passport to the Federal High Court, Abuja, which released it and authorized his foreign trip.
