Ebola: Fashola urges Nigeria to play leadership role in West Africa

Share This

Fashola 3According to him, “There is still problem in Liberia, Sierra Leone and others. Their population is not what we have in Nigeria, especially in Lagos State. For Lagos alone, the capacity of the state encompasses many of those countries affected by the virus.

The governor noted that the country should be considering how it would assist the countries still battling with the virus, noting “to help them solve their crisis using the method that we have applied here. That is the leadership role Nigeria should be playing on EVD at the moment.”

Fashola opined that this should be part of the post Ebola activities because we are the fifth largest economy in Africa.

On the strategy used by the state, the governor said “Without the Public health law which was passed in 2002, we would have been in trouble. And this was one of the things our partners ask immediately they arrived. And the law gives the state the opportunity to arrest anyone whose health constitutes danger to others “Without the law, we could not have achieved what we did.”
