Leaked memo reveals that owners of Africa Independent Television and Raypower, asked both broadcast stations to stop airing his comment on COVID-19.
In the letter released Sunday evening from one of its whatsApp groups, Chief Raymond Dokpesi, founder of DAAR Communications Plc, instructed workers to take down contents of both father and son over their experiences during their times in Isolation.
NewsWireNGR recalls that Dokpesi senior had in a viral video said he was confused on the difference between COVID-19 and malaria as all drugs he was given while in isolation were malaria medications.
He said, “What’s the difference between COVID-19 and malaria? Every drug we were given were malaria medications.
But in an internal memo to staff of the two stations, the media mogul said he had settled with the Nigerian Government and Nigeria Centre for Disease Control over the issue.
He said, “I write to request you to discontinue referencing the comments and views expressed by both the founder, Engr. Raymond A.A Dokpesi, and the Chairman, Chief Raymond Dokpesi Jnr, in all your news bulletins and in fact bring them down from your official websites for now.
“Very senior citizens and elders have argued and I agree with them that I should have addressed a private message to the PTF and the Presidency rather than cast aspersions on their methods thereby creating doubts in the minds of the public.
“I also agree to an immediate truce.”
