Via The Guardian in Nigeria: Ebola: Jonathan seeks collaboration of West African countries. Excerpt:
President Goodluck Jonathan Tuesday called for strategic collaboration among West African countries to contain the Ebola Virus Disease in order to check its spread and further threat to human lives.
Jonathan stated this while receiving in audience the new Ambassador of Guinea to Nigeria, Mr. Gaoussou Toure who presented his letters of credence to the President at the State House, Abuja yesterday
The President commended the containment measures so far taken by West African countries that have been affected by the disease, stressing that more concerted intra-regional cooperation and action needs to be developed.
“A problem that affects one of us affects all. We may need to come together as a region to strengthen our containment measures. I am however, pleased that serious measures are being taken to control the spread of the disease,” President Jonathan said.
The envoy had earlier thanked the President for the financial assistance given to Guinea by Nigeria for tackling the (Ebola) disease and assured him that Guinea is deploying containment measures to combat the outbreak. He reaffirmed Guinea’s commitment to strengthening the country’s cordial relations with Nigeria.
