In a report in PremiumTimes, detained AIT boss, Raymond Dokpesi’s family has come out in his defense, allegedly, claiming the N2.1 billion former president Jonathan gave him through the Office of NSA and directly scooped as CBN blood dollars, was not for PDP promotion as claimed in the media. However in explaining what the money was for, the family, according to the paper made a statement that queried their intelligence and supported the theory that people loot because they know their family are not smart and that their offspring will need help with being successful in the future and hence need the looted billions to make it.
The family while thinking they were defending their head of household said that Dokpesi drafted the proposal to promote the Jonathan government and demystify ‘false’ information by the opposition party (singular). Sic. What is the difference between a rock and a hard place, we ask?
“We will like to make it abundantly clear that Dr. Dokpesi’s Daar Investment and Holdings Company Ltd, developed a proposal presented to the Former President Goodluck Jonathan proposing a Multi Media Strategic Development Support Project to promote and project the achievements and highlight the challenges of his government whilst demystifying false information gleefully circulated by the propaganda machinery of the then opposition party,” the family said via a statement signed by Raymond Dokpesi Jnr.
The statement also said the proposal was submitted to the former President in person by Mr. Dokpesi and his team in the presence of the former Vice President, Namadi Sambo, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
“We must further emphasize that the proposal had absolutely nothing to do with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), nor the Presidential Campaign Council (PCC),” the family said.
The statement said the proposal was “thoroughly studied, approved and paid for by the Presidency through the office of the National Security Adviser” which “has multiple budgetary sub-heads including for communication and information”.
