|Politics / Nigerians Want Diplomat Who Escaped Ebola surveillance Punished by Dragonking: 10:14pm|
The Ebola outbreak in Rivers State, which has
led to the death of a Port-Harcourt-based
medical doctor, Dr. Iyke Enemuo, and over 100
residents being monitored, has sparked calls for
sanctions against those who evade Ebola
The Rivers State Commissioner For Health, Dr.
Samson Parker, said the deceased had treated
Olu-Koye, a Nigerian diplomat with the Economic
Community of West African States, secretly in a
hotel in Port-Harcourt, even when he knew that
the diplomat had had primary contact with the
late Liberian-American diplomat, Patrick Sawyer,
who died of the deadly Ebola virus.
Although he was being monitored by health
authorities in Lagos, Olu-Koye managed to evade
surveillance and boarded a plane to Port-
Harcourt, to seek treatment, thereby causing
panic and raising fears of an outbreak of the
virus in the oil-rich city.
Reacting to the development online on Monday,
many Nigerians called on the Federal
Government to sanction the diplomat who
evaded monitoring. According to them, his action
should be treated as a ‘criminal act” as it has
led to the ‘murder’ of the late doctor.
An online commentator, Chukwu Egbekwu, said
Olu-Koye had committed the same offence as
Sawyer, who knew he was infected with the virus
yet defied surveillance to travel to Nigeria,
putting the nation at risk of contracting the
“This guy’s actions ( Olu-Koye) are not different
from the Liberians who looted an Ebola centre.
He is like Sawyer. To me, he is a criminal. He
has committed murder. The blood of the doctor
is on him. Both of them have proved the fact
there are many educated criminals in our midst.”
Another commentator, Mr. Kayode Soyemi, said
Olu-Koye made a ‘reckless decision’, an offence
that should be punishable in the law court and
treated as a matter that compromises national
interest and safety.
Soyemi posted, “An adult of his standing, who
deliberately acted so recklessly and irresponsibly,
does not deserve to be allowed to exist within
the society. He should be charged for culpable
homicide. Maybe it’s about time we had a law
that will sentence an Ebola carrier, who
intentionally spreads the disease, to death or life
“We couldn’t do anything about Sawyer, but this
man must be made to face his actions. Olu-
Koye the diplomat should be sacked for this
ignoble role he has played. In developed
countries, having survived the virus, he would
most likely be tried and jailed for bringing death
knowingly to others. Status be damned!
While some respondents demanded Olu-Koye’s
head, others blamed the late doctor for treating
the diplomat, though he knew that the diplomat
had had contact with Saywer.
Angered by Enemuo’s action, they said his poor
judgment had almost marred the heroic efforts of
the late senior doctor with First Consultant, Dr.
Stella Adadevoh, who has been praised by all for
her role in containing Sawyer, when he was
brought to the private hospital.
A facebook post by Tayo Omorinola stated that
the late doctor had acted unprofessionally and
invariably had put his wife, who has been
confirmed to be infected with the Ebola virus,
many patients, his colleagues at the two
hospitals where he was treated and the whole
state in danger.
The post reads,” I am pained. I think the doctor
who accepted to treat his friend should take the
blame, knowing the seriousness of the case. As a
professional, he should have reported the case to
Lagos. Now he has put his wife and child, as
well as other Nigerians, on danger list, while the
friend survived. Millions of Nigerians are now
In another post on
Facebook, Anyejuo Ibe said doctors must
recognise their part in containing the disease,
while those who commit similar offence as
Emenuo must be sanctioned in the future and
their licences revoked by the Medical and Dental
Council of Nigeria.
“Did he think he was a super hero? His crime
was greater than that of the criminal diplomat,
Olu-Koye. He should have immediately
quarantined the diplomat and called the attention
of the appropriate health authorities to the case.
I hope that other criminals in doctors’ clothing
are learning from these experiences. Why can’t
they all be like Dr Stella Adadevoh? Just how
much money could one patient have paid him to
warrant risking his life with this virulent virus.
The MDCN should talk to its doctors now,” he
They, however, called on the Federal and the
Rivers State governments to deploy all resources
at their disposal towards containing the viral
disease, as failure to do may put Nigeria on the
list of countries stricken with the disease.

|Literature / Re: IFY - A Romantic Thriller by 2scorehigh(m): 10:14pm|
But this time around, I knew I must thrash all that out with him. What are friends for, anyway? I will ask Eze to get his dad to fix me up. I am no longer going to be afraid of what might happen to me assuming I get the job and I later fall out with Eze, due to one thing or the other.
I am going to swallow my pride or whatever it was. I don’t want to care anymore if Eze will be tempted to start telling our mutual friends—out of boastfulness or in an attempt to paint me black and make me appear as an ungrateful s.o.b—that if not for him, I would still be jobless because he was the one who got me the job.
I think I have waited for so long. Now, I am going to ask him to fix me up. If he doesn’t want to grow up, that is his business!
Besides, I had other plans and I think now’s the time. During the time I was actively seeking for an employment, in fact for any employment, I had the opportunity to attend a job seminar that changed my whole life.
I was listening on our local radio station one day when suddenly this guy came on air and started talking about one seminar he was going to organize for those seeking for employment. He said that he had taken the pains to study the reasons why people don’t get employed after graduation these days. He said the situation has given him so much concern but he’s finally happy to announce that he now has what he calls the solution.
I usually consider such radio programs lame. In fact, too lame for my liking. I couldn’t see the point or need of trying to take from those who don’t have. Why do you guys always take the pride and the joy of exploiting us job seekers with your bogus claims all the time? I saw all these radio program miracle workers as scammers. I was no longer paying attention to what he was saying. I was only waiting to hear the amount the charlatan of a guy was going to mention as the price of this latest version of sham.
He did mention that the attendance fee of that life changing seminar was just a thousand naira. I scoffed because of the way the id.i.ot said just. I was about dismissing him and conclude that this one was cheap when the guy dropped something that touched me instantly. He said that those who didn’t attend will have themselves to be blamed because he has also made arrangements for companies seeking for people to hire to be there which means that some people will be offered automatic employment right from the seminar hall.
I suspected this was just another case of pure manipulation again. I knew it was just a pure marketing strategy. The guy just wanted our one thousand naira, simple and short. But what if he’s serious? What if some people were really going to be hired right there? There was only one way to know. I knew I had to attend just to satisfy my curiosity and prove myself right in the process. Don’t blame me. Curiosity is the bedrock of all human follies, I concluded.
So I went. When the seminar finally began, the guy started by telling us how to go for interviews. He told us the types of questions that employers or interviewers might likely ask and how to avoid some trick questions that they may throw your way. He lectured us on the dressing codes that we should put on for interviews so as to appear responsible and presentable. At some point, it started to dawn on me that maybe, the guy was just prepping us in readiness to sell off those job interview books or GMAT study manuals to us.
It was getting so boring to me listening to the guy and his little team of four babbling for close to one hour thirty minutes. Tell that BS to those fresh graduates who are just graduating and not to old hands like me who have heard such things over and over again. I was just waiting for the best opportunity to present itself so that I could quietly take my leave and go home to curse the one thousand naira petty thief.
Then it happened. After rambling for close to two hours, the guy suddenly stopped and told us that the company he said was going to be employing people right from the seminar hall was actually his own. I noticed this made a lot of people to sit up at once. Obviously, they were having the same bored feeling I had.
The guy now told us that his company is looking for just ten dedicated and experienced PHP and MySQL web programmers to hire with immediate effect. He asked for those who knew how to program the web with PHP to indicate by raising up their hands.
PHP? And MySQL? What on earth are those things? Frankly speaking, I was hearing those for the very first time.
It was very a very embarrassing situation for almost all of us because who would have believed that out of over a hundred to two hundred people, mostly graduates, that were gathered there, not even a single hand was raised!
The guy started to laugh hysterically. Later, as he wiped the tears from his eyes with his white handkerchief, he told us that he had already envisaged this very situation and he told us that what we just saw summarizes the main reason why it seems people don’t get jobs in Nigeria anymore: there is a great dearth in the skills and manpower that employers of labor want!
From thence, the whole tone of the seminar changed. The guy now told us that he could have started off this seminar by telling us all that at first but he was just waiting for us to see the reality on ground with our own eyes and he was so glad that we could now see for ourselves how terrible and disturbing the whole situation really is.
