The founder and chairman emeritus of DAAR Communications Plc, Chief Raymond Dokpesi has recovered from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and discharged from the isolation centre at the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital, Gwagwalada.
Speaking after testing negative for the COVID-19, Dokpesi in a press statement made available to Vanguard said he was exceptionally indebted to God Almighty for keeping him and his family throughout the period of the condition.
Recall Vanguard had earlier reported that Dokpesi, his wife, three children, and other persons tested positive for the coronavirus disease (COVID-19). This report was few days after Vanguard earlier reported that Raymond Dokpesi Jnr, the chairman of DAAR contracted the coronavirus.
In his appreciation, Dokpesi said; “My gratitude goes to many Nigerians in the country and in the diaspora for their outpouring of concern and prayers.
“The past weeks have provided us with a first-hand experience of the enormous challenge before us as a country. We are better acquainted with the personal sacrifices many Nigerians are making to ensure that we collectively defeat this pandemic. This cuts across the policymakers, the care providers and even the cleaners whose job puts them at constant risk of exposure.
“I am exceptionally indebted to God Almighty for keeping and protecting me and my entire family all through our isolation at the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital, Gwagwalada Isolation Centre.”
“It is my firm belief that with well thought out policies, coupled with targeted and highly coordinated investment in the health system, Nigeria’s fight against COVID-19 may become the catalyst for the much-needed reform in the health sector.”
