Kwara legislator commends health workers for defeating Ebola

21 October 2014, 08:54Augustine Osayande

Abuja - Senator Abubakar Bukola Saraki, representing Kwara Central at the National Assembly, commended all stakeholders, particularly healthcare workers, for halting the Ebola virus from spreading.

The World Health Organisation declared Nigeria Ebola-free on Monday.

“I join Nigerians all over the world to celebrate the World Health Organisation declaring our country 'Ebola free'. We must all commend everyone that played a role in this victory, especially our healthcare workers that stood on the frontlines to halt the Ebola virus from spreading," he said.

"And, as we do so, we must also remember the heroes - our dear and departed countrymen and women - who gave their lives in service of their nation, by maintaining the integrity of the medical profession.”

He said this is a significant achievement that must be celebrated by every Nigerian, regardless of political affiliation.

“The way that we all came together to combat this disease makes me believe that together Nigeria stands as an unconquerable and indivisible nation. As we stand as a nation that has defeated this virus, we must also remember our sister-nations in Africa that are still struggling to contain this disease.”

The senator called on the Federal Government and all well-meaning Nigerians to offer any help and assistance that could be rendered, in order to ensure that this potential epidemic is dealt with globally.
