Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the February 25 poll Atiku Abubakar on Wednesday visited the family of media mogul Raymond Dokpesi.
PDP chieftain Dele Momodu shared a video of the visit on his Instagram page.
“The former Vice President of Nigeria and PDP Presidential Candidate in the February 25, 2023, Election, H.E. Atiku Abubakar is currently at the Hilltop Mansion, Gbaduma Hill, Asokoro, Abuja, home of the Media Mogul, High Chief Engr Raymond A. A. Dokpesi, who passed on Monday, May 29, 2023,” he wrote.
