I’m okay, I feel well, Dokpesi speaks after arriving isolation centre
After testing positive to Coronavirus and arriving at the isolation centre at the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital, Gwagwalada, FCT, Founder of Daar Communications Plc, Chief Raymond Aleogho Dokpesi, remains optimistic and has asked for prayers from Nigerians.
According to AIT, a subsidiary of Daar Communications, his daughter-in-law, and six members of his family came down with the disease three days after his son and Chairman of the board of the company, Raymond Dokpesi Jnr, tested positive.
They were all driven to the isolation centre where his son and current Chairman of the Daar Group has been recuperating. He was the first to test positive.
A test conducted by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control on the Dokpesi family came out positive for the eight members of the family.
“I am quite okay. I feel very well,” Dokpesi told journalists at the centre.
Dokpesi Jr began feeling feverish, and later began coughing, leading to contacting the NCDC which tested and confirmed him positive.
The subsequent contact tracing in the family and company led to the testing and confirmation of the eight members as positive.
Staff of DAAR Group have started complaining of being stigmatized by members of the public after Dokpesi Jnr tested positive. With the latest development, the stigmatization may increase especially among their colleagues and neighbours at home.
The FCT health authorities have fumigated the entire DAAR headquarters building in Asokoro,
