#iPGN: Nigeria not completely free from Ebola -Minister

The Health Minister, Dr Haliru Alhassan, has raised the fear over a likely resurgence of Ebola Virus Disease in Nigeria.

He spoke on the occasion marking the upgrading of Federal Medical Centre , Ido Ekiti, to a Federal Teaching Hospital and the signing of Memorandum of Understanding between the Federal Government and Afe Babalola University, Ado Ekiti, on Saturday.

Expressing worry over the nationwide strike embarked upon by the Joint Health Staff Union, the minister said Nigeria was not free from Ebola as long as there were reported cases of the deadly virus in any part of the world.

Alhassan, who appealed to all concerned to sustain the leadership role of President Goodluck Jonathan in tackling the deadly disease, said the indefinite strike action embarked upon by JOHESU at a time when many Nigerians would return home from abroad to celebrate Christmas and New Year, could threaten the success achieved.

The MoU followed the building of a N2.5bn worth Clinical Complex by the proprietor of ABUAD, Chief Afe Babalola (SAN), in the hospital as part of the requirements by Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria and National Universities Commission for the running of Medicine and Surgery in the institution.
