When the Ebola outbreak began, the Federal Government and the Lagos government visited Prophet TB Joshua in a bid to get him to engage in crowd-control and to tell his foreign members from Ebola-affected countries to stay put.

It had the desired effect. More churches eschewed the sign of peace and adjusted the methods by which the communion wine and bread was administered. These measures were necessary in the wake of the viral Ebola infection. Everyone obeyed and complied with regulations.

Civil rights and political activists have expressed outrage over President Goodluck Jonathan’s failure to halt ongoing political rallies organised by Transformation Association of Nigeria [TAN] for his re-election despite the President personally warning against such large gatherings as part of measures to check the spread of the Ebola Virus Disease in Nigeria.

It plans to hold more in other geo-political zones in the weeks ahead. The rallies, which have had top government officials and presidential aides in attendance, were held despite Mr. Jonathan’s directive earlier in the month asking religious and political groups as well as other bodies to discourage gatherings and activities that could provide platforms for close contacts with those likely infected by the dreaded disease.
