While we commended the effort of AU/ECOWAS, we also wish to remind them that the future of this three West African countries is a challenge before them, they should not only play a role in the fight against ebola but to also design a comprehensive eeconomic policy that will help the countries immediately after recovery from the sociopolitical travails the outbreak must have caused. As stakeholders, it is imperative therefore to say that we must continue to propagate team spirit and solidarity in handling any phenomena. As a regional association we strongly belief this is a fertile ground upon which we must always remember that ours is more of a social service beneficial to the people of West Africa, Consequently, we have equally set up a committee charged with the responsibility of mobilizing medical volunteers that will assist in the fight against ebola in the affected countries.
