Court dismisses Dokpesi’s suit against APDA

An Abuja High Court has thrown out a suit by the founder of DAAR Communications Plc, Raymond Dokpesi, against Advanced Peoples Democratic Alliance, APDA.

Justice Halilu Yusuf, on Thursday threw out the suit against APDA under the leadership of Mallam Shitu Mohammed.

Earlier, the Advanced Peoples Democratic Alliance (APDA) had dared Chief Raymond Dokpesi, to prove that he is founder and financier of the party.

APDA also challenged the media mogul to name the PDP governors and the federal government agency, which he claimed are other financiers of the party.

The party was reacting to a statement credited to Dokpesi, in which he claimed to have founded and funds the party.

“These two clarification would easily exonerate him or clearly show that his claims are not true for what it is worth.

“For the records, the national chairman, Mallam Shittu Mohammed approached Chief Dokpesi to partner us with his media outfit during the process leading to the registration of the party and the present national secretariat was equally donated by the national chairman as well.

“It is public knowledge that all the PDP family disowned and has continuously refuted any relationship with the APDA,” APDA secretary, Tosin Adeyanju, said in a statement.
