Raymond Dokpesi Jnr, Chairman of DAAR Communications Plc, has recovered from coronavirus infection three weeks after he tested positive for the disease.
He was discharged hours after Raymond Dokpesi, his father and founder of DAAR Communications, and his two children were discharged from the University of Abuja isolation center.
CANDIID ONLINE reports that in a statement released on Friday, he expressed gratitude to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) and the medical team at the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital where he was treated, for their efforts.
Sharing his experience, he said: “My sojourn at the Gwagwalada isolation center was an eye-opening experience which imbued me with confidence in the unabated enthusiasm and commitment of Nigerian public health workers to serve and ensure the welfare of each of their patients
.”But he expressed disappointment that he was not given any documentary evidence of his status, and that he had to take it in good faith that he was COVID-19 positive as pronounced by the NCDC.“
Whilst I can attest to my improvement in physical health and wellbeing, I regret to say that since my initial test to date, I have never seen any documentary evidence of any test result,” he stated.
“I take it in trust and good faith that the NCDC pronounced me COVID-19 positive and that they have now also pronounced me COVID-negative.”
I will appreciate it if the documentary records of the various tests on me and members of m family are made available for our medical records.”
He also expressed appreciation to members of his family, board management and staff of DAAR Communications Plc, and other well-meaning persons, “who prayed, fasted, held vigils, and sent messages to me, my family, and my known associates”.
“Your love, prayers, and well wishes have humbled me and were a source of strength and inspiration to me at the very darkest moments of my life,” he added.
