Founder of DAAR Communications Plc, Raymond Dokpesi, and two members of his family has recovered from coronavirus (COVID-19) infection and has been discharged.

We recall that their recovery comes two weeks after Dokpesi and seven other members of his family tested positive for COVID-19, four days after his son, Raymond Dokpesi Jnr, announced he had the disease.

The media mogul, in a letter of appreciation on Thursday, wrote: “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 Center.”


Dokpesi said the past two weeks at the treatment center provided him with a first-hand experience of the ‘enormous’ challenge before Nigeria 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,” he wrote.

The Peoples Democratic Party chieftain said he believed that with well thought-out policies 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.”Dokpesi was discharged with two of his grandchildren. His other family members await their test results.
