Dokpesi speaks on regrets of life at 70

Dr. Raymond Aleogho Dokpesi, Chairman Emeritus of DAAR Communications Plc, on Saturday said one of the greatest errors of his life was going into polygamy saying contrary to the impression that he entered into polygamy because of his wealth, he revealed that it was due to internal family challenges. 

Dokpesi stated this in an interview with journalists in Abuja on Saturday as part of the activities to mark his 70th birthday.

The media mogul also revealed how he survived poisoning as a little child even as doctors in Poland predicted that he would not last more than 35 years. 

Dokpesi spoke ahead of the public presentation of his autobiography titled: “The Handkerchief”, to be unveiled as part of activities to mark his 70th birthday scheduled for October 25. 

He said, “I am a Catholic and I definitely will tell you that one of the greatest errors of my life is polygamy. But it is not something that I desired or something that I wanted. It was a situation that developed, I just had no alternative. 

“A lot of people looked at it as if it was wealth that distorted my behaviour but the truth of the matter is that there were internal family challenges that led to the polygamy. I was married to a Polish woman, I wanted to remain with the Polish woman, I still desired it in my old age but she left Nigeria for reasons that she was the only child of her parents and so she had to stay with her parents and I had to stay here and there is no leave in marriage.
