Chairman of DAAR Communications Plc, Raymond Dokpesi Jnr, has tested positive for coronavirus.

He made this known in a message forwarded to members of staff of the AIT.

Two members of staff of the station confirmed the message to The PUNCH.

In the message, Dokpesi Jnr urged members of staff who had interacted with him to isolate themselves.

The message read, “I got a call this morning confirming the result is COVID-19 positive. I am leaving now to the Gwagwalada Isolation Centre for treatment and hope to be back in two weeks. 

“Many of you may have interacted with me during our various meetings and I would advise you to get tested as soon as possible.”

Als, AIT on its website reported that Dokpesi, who took over the operation of the station from his father in December 2014, developed symptoms similar to that of the virus and got tested.

Part of the report read, “The Chairman, who has been on self-isolation for about a week, began feeling ill with symptoms similar to malaria. 

“He also started experiencing cough and as a precaution, reached out to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, NCDC, for a test which later turned out positive for the COVID-19.

“He has been evacuated by the NCDC to the isolation centre at the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital Gwagwalada for treatment.

“He has assured members of staff that he still feels strong and hopes to be back soon.

“Meanwhile, the contact tracing team of the NCDC is to begin a test of persons who may have had contacts with Dokpesi in the past two weeks, as well as all other members of staff.”

  2. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She
    never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but
    I had to tell someone!

  3. Unquestionably believe that that you stated. Your favourite justification seemed to
    be at the internet the easiest thing to take into account
    of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed at the same time as folks consider issues
    that they just do not realize about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top
    and outlined out the entire thing with no need side
    effect , folks can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more.
    Thank you 3gqLYTc cheap flights
