Ebola: President Jonathan Displeased With Stigmatization of Nigerians Worldwide



President Goodluck Jonathan on Monday expressed displeasure with the way Nigerians are being stigmatized in the world over the Ebola virus. He said the action has no justified excuse since Nigeria has been declared Ebola free by the World Health Organization.

Jonathan spoke while receiving the French Foreign Minister, Mr. Laurent Fabius and his German counterpart, Dr. Frank-Walter Steinmeier, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, according to a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati.

“He told the French Foreign Minister, Mr. Laurent Fabius and the German Foreign Minister, Dr. Frank-Walter Steinmeier that Nigeria will remain fully vigilant to prevent the re-entry of the virus because the Federal Government recognizes that the country will remain at risk as long as Ebola is active in other West African countries or any other part of the world.

“Nigeria, President Jonathan assured the visiting Ministers, will therefore cooperate fully with other concerned nations to stop the current outbreak of Ebola in West Africa as quickly as possible.

“The Ministers told the President that they were in Nigeria to seek further cooperation with the Federal Government in the growing global effort to contain the current outbreak and continuing spread of the Ebola Virus Disease.

“They praised Nigeria’s successful containment of the virus and expressed the desire of France, Germany and the European Union to collaborate more with Nigeria in helping other West African countries where the virus still remains active.”
