Nigeria Donates $1m To Fight Ebola In Africa by zinachidi(m): 8:09am On Jul 22, 2015
The Federal Government on Tuesday demonstrated its commitment to stamping out Ebola Virus Disease in Africa, with President Muhammadu Buhari announcing a donation of US$1 million to the continent.

This is in addition to earlier contributions by Nigeria to stem the disease in the region.

The gesture is to also underscore the importance of ridding the continent of Ebola and in the spirit of mutual assistance.

A statement by the Director of Press and Public Relations in the Ministry of Health, Mrs. Ayo Adesugba, said Buhari announced the donation during the international conference of African Ministers of Health in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea.

The President, who was represented by the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Health, Mr. Linus Awute, used the forum to share Nigeria’s experience in 2014, in rapidly containing the deadly virus.

He however said, “Nigeria is not celebrating the end of Ebola in Nigeria until this disease is totally eliminated from the West African region. This is because Ebola in one country remains also a threat to another. Therefore, meeting the challenge is crucial to us right now and so we remain committed to support all efforts of the African Union in this fight.”

Along this line, according to him, Nigeria is in full support of the establishment of the African Centre for Disease Control, working with the regional centre, which he said, would significantly enhance health targets to build the International Health Regulations Capacities.

Buhari observed that ECOWAS region was the first to take the initiative of establishing a regional Centre for Disease Control in which the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control was designed as the regional centre in recognition of its role in curtailing the spread of the disease in Nigeria and the West African sub-region.

He stated that Nigeria was supporting research efforts in developing therapies and vaccines against the disease, adding that the efforts were leading to the development of promising Ebola therapies through partnership between government and private sector.

The President recalled that Nigeria welcomed the AU Peace and Security Council’s decision taken during its 450th meeting on August 19 2014, to support the Ebola affected countries in West Africa through the Africa Union Support to Ebola Outbreak in West Africa by deploying volunteers.

He remarked that Nigeria was among the first countries to respond, by deploying 198 personnel who served in the ASEOWA mission, which contributed to the progress made in the affected countries by reducing Ebola cases from about 400 per week in 2014 to less than 30 in 2015.

Buhari observed that the success might have informed governments and partners to embark on disengaging or reducing their support in human and material resources, even though the mission of the ASEOWA to stop Ebola transmission in the affected member states, prevent international spread and rebuild health systems had not been fully achieved.

He stressed that the recent upsurge of cases in Sierra Leone and Guinea and the reappearance of cases in Liberia, after being certified Ebola-free by the World Health Organisation, confirmed that Africa was dealing with regional and international health security emergencies of larger proportions.

Buhari therefore called on the African Union Commission to reconsider the immediate redeployment of volunteers to the affected countries, “until the job is done.”

To them, since PMB met a virtually empty treasury, Nigeria has no right to have any money nor even earn any more.

See them wailing at every news, good or bad:

Every news story coming out of Nigeria or western nations regarding Buhari is fake news and should be ignored.

Buhari was toppled in a secret coup that occurred the weekend following his inauguration.

Why are we all complaining about the empty treasury producing money?
I don't know if the treasury was empty or not but I do know we can generate a lot of revenue as a country that produces Oil.

Let's stop complaining Please
we did it in President Jonathan's Era
Now again in President Buhari's Era
