There are still a lot of americans waiting to be evacuated from liberia. I doubt sawyer would have been given special treatment prior to recent events. Still speculation anyway.
Glad to know you realize you are merely speculating. Any US citizen positive for Ebola infection would automatically be given higher priority and evacuated if necessary. This should be pretty obvious.

MissMeiya. Your comments are one of the very few here making any sense, how people excuse the failure of Govt to have taken precautionary measures at all point of entries, is just so shocking.

More shocking is how folks would think it's ok for President GJ to call the Victim a madman, an irresponsible and unnecessary comment at this time when all focus should be on preventing the spread of the virus.

Seeing how people reason and the comments on this topic and on NL in general, personally I think the falling standards of education,especially tertiary education in Nigeria is really a thing of serious.

Young Nigerians, Read, Develop Your Mind,Think Independently -


oga why you dey reason like this now? so many things are annoying me with this your post sir..no offense o but what is the correlation between calling the man crazy and d ongoing efforts to control the virus??

i want to believe you are informed about this case? what precautionary measures could the government have taken t prevent Mr Sawyer from bringing Ebola here?

the floor is yours if you care for it

Lol. You don't know the meaning of speculation it seems. I have just told you the standard US practice. There is a reason 2 US citizens who required critical medical assistance were immediately evacuated.

MissMeiya:

Congratulations on managing to hold a civil conversation until now. Do you want a cookie? What's your alternative? That Sawyer intentionally booked his flight to Liberia and then to a "supposed" conference in Nigeria, so he could purposely infect himself and bring it to Nigeria, and die there?

Really, what's your theory, genius?
Any theory from a Manchurian Candidate to Brainwashing by Martians sound more plausible than the boneheaded one you came up with; and that is putting it mildly.

If GEJ no talk now, una go dey yab am say him too mumu. Wetin human beings fit do to please una kind? Haba! GEJ was right in calling the man crazy. Respect for the dead? So what? And what has Obama got to do with this one? This is Naija; we have our culture and ways of doing things. You do not expect Jonathan to start acting like an American. The cultures are different, biko!

HarrveySpecter: Little wonder Nigeria is in the state it is. The way Nigerians celebrate mediocre, is just unbelievable. What happens to being professional and using professional terms?
We all know what Obama must have thought of Osama, but we don't see obama calling him names in public? Putin get America/obama for mind, but he doesn't call them/him names in public.
Besides the man is deceased, he deserves a little bit of respect.

To answer you : The correlation is simple,Mr. President is tactless in his speech even at such a crucial time of a national health emergency : That's why for example this tread on NL has so far centered on Mr. President use of the term "crazy man" and not as much as the efforts being taken to curtail the spread of Ebola Virus.

To your 2nd Question, I ask you this 1st, what precautionary measures is the Govt taking now?

Could this not have already been in place way ahead of time when it was very clear the virus was ravaging countries in West Africa.

The simple truth is if only the govt had even set up minimal screening centers at international airport to check people entering Nigeria via regional flights especially from West Africa, Mr. Sawyer would have been at least stopped @ the airport - saving the whole situation Nigeria has in its hands now.

The Victim Came Into Nigeria- Because Not A Single Ebola Alert or Check Was In Place. Our Govt Failed To Prepare for this despite knowing an Ebola carrier can come into the country. Let Just Thank God Only One Infected Man Came That Day From Liberia- What If they where 10 Infected Carriers on That Flight? The Progression of this viral spread would be 10times what you see today.

Don't Excuse the failure of Govt, it's there to protect you- when you excuse Govt, you encourage mediocrity.

At best, he suffers from a Personality Disorder (Narcissistic Personality Disorder comes to mind) or Mental Illness that makes him to perpetually be in denial of reality: when his sister was infected he continued to care for her refusing to consider Ebola till he got infected; and he even rejected the diagnosis of Ebola for his sister even though she died.

At worst it was a vindictive and intentional plot to infect Nigerians. I saw reports indicating he knew he was infected and kept to himself while leaving Liberia. Why did he lie when interviewed by the Nigerian medical team that catered to him about exposure to Ebola? Why did he get his people to call the medical staff to let him go and continue his assignment in Nigeria? Does that look like someone looking for medical assistance?

the question is what is the correlation between the president calling the guy crazy the national ebola prevention efforts? as in: how does Mr presidents word directly or indirectly have a relationship with the actual efforts being made to prevent the spread of ebole in the country?

secondly, guy this is the point you all need to grasp: Sawyer was evacuated right from the plane straight to the hospital because he was already showing serious symptoms mid-air.... understand?

let me try again. he did not pass through any immigration official, he did not penetrate any border; he got sick on the plane and was rushed straight to the hospital once the plane landed.

There are no answers to these questions until we know something of his history.

First, has he been to nigeria before?

Second, who did he interact with, or which nigerians ( in quote) are his contacts/friends.

Third, did no one in nigeria know his movements before boarding the plane ie that he'd just cared for his sister who incidentally, had ebola.

Fourth, Where is his boss who its said took the flight with him?


Many other questions.

HarrveySpecter: I am just watching channels news and the president was meeting with governors and in his speech where he was giving a brief history on how ebola came to Nigeria. He said, "sawyer after going to his sisters burial and participated in one way or the other, contacted the disease. He was advised to stay but the "crazy man" (with using his hand as gesture) refuse to listen."

Something in that line.

How can a president talk like this on national TV for the love?

I have to say kudos to the Dr that would not be pressured into discharging him. Most people would have caved had they gotten a call from an Embassy. I don't know his name but he saved many Nigerian lives. If Sawyer had reached Calabar it would have been disastrous. I think Nigeria handled this well and I am usually a tough critic of Nigeria and her many issues.

Whatever the case may be, his trip to Nigeria definitely had no bearing with him getting prompt medical attention. Though several of your questions here do not need answers. For instance, Nigeria need not be aware of his exposure to Ebola; that was the business of Liberia. Nigeria cannot be sending an Ebola patient as a representative to South Africa without looking foolish.

iyke926: ...a crazy white man sad
Is he a white man...... No need pulling racist stunts guy....... Sawyer is indeed crazy because his actions prior to his arrival in Nigeria shows he intentionally came here to infect Nigerians with the virus....... But he is not the only one to be blamed because if NCAA had blocked all flights to the three ebola infected countries like Gambia did, sawyer would have died in Liberia...... So I don't see the need for crying over split milk, prevention is always better than the cure but the deed has been done already because of carelessness on the part of NCAA.

God Bless you brother. Our stupid,foolish & lazy government didn't put any measures in place to fight off any possible threat of the ebola virus getting into the country & here we have our everly clueless president blaming Patrick Sawyer. If the president is this clueless as to what measures his government should have put in place before now,how sure can we be that other ebola carriers from other countries who were not sick at the the time of their entry into Nigeria are not already in our midst?
