Former vice-president Atiku Abubakar has cautioned against Ebola disease and called on government to establish a localised protocol to guard against possible infection.
Ebola disease was reported in Guinea last two weeks and has killed about 86 persons.
Atiku, who posted the warning on his blog, said there was need for appropriate agencies of government to take proactive measures against the disease.
“As part of the protocol, I encourage the government to follow suit with Morocco and Saudi Arabia, by instituting extra health screening at entry points to the country.
“To the citizens of Nigeria, I encourage both your awareness and calm cooperation with health experts as they employ international best practices to prevent EVD. If you or a loved one is exhibiting signs and symptoms of EVD, please contact your local health officials immediately”, Atiku said.
