The founder of DAAR Communications, owners of AIT and Raypower, High Chief Raymond Dokpesi has been discharged from the COVID-19 treatment centre at Gwagwalada, FCT-Abuja after testing negative for the virus.
This was made known in a statement signed by him on Thursday.
Dokpesi was discharged with two of his grandchildren while the results of the other family members are still being expected.
According to him; “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.
“My gratitude goes to many Nigerians in the county and in the diaspora for their outpouring of concern and prayers.
“However, special mention must be made of the SGF, Mr Boss Mustapha & Chairman PTF, who not only sympathized with me & my family but also personally made both video & voice calls on several occasions to ascertain our well-being.”
