Coronavirus: Dokpesi tests negative, seeks health sector reform

Chief Raymond Dokpesi, the founder/Chairman Emeritus of Daar Communications Plc, has been discharged from the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital, Gwagwalada after recovering from COVID-19.
He stated, “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.”
Dokpesi thanked the Secretary to the Government of the Federation and Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Boss Mustapha, “who not only sympathised with him and his family but also personally made both video and voice calls on several occasion to ascertain our well-being.”
Eight family members of Dokpesi moved to the Gwagwalada isolation centre in Abuja. The decision followed the test carried out on his son and Chairman of Daar Communications Plc, Chief Raymond Dokpesi Jnr, on Thursday, April 23, 2020 by the National Centre for Disease Control which eventually proved positive.
The Ezomo of Weppa Wanno Kingdom, in a statement released on Friday by the Executive Director (Corporate Affairs) of DAAR Communications Plc, Johnson Onime, thanked God for keeping and protecting him and his entire family all through their isolation at UNIABUTH in Gwagwalada.
He said, “I am most delighted to state that after the reconfirmation test, I have been confirmed negative to COVID-19 and so discharged accordingly in the early hours of today, Thursday, May 14, 2020.
“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 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 country and in the diaspora for their outpouring of concern and prayers.”
