Ebola: ALGON hails Jonathan for prompt response
The Association of Local Governments of Nigeria (ALGON) hailed President Goodluck Jonthan yesterday for his prompt response to the outbreak of the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) in Nigeria.
In a statement by its Secretary General, Alhaji Shittu Bamaiyi, the association noted that Federal Government’s prompt response showed its dedication and concern to save lives.
The statement reads: “The Federal Government’s efforts at checkmating the killer disease are not only heart-warming but reassuring in protecting the health of Nigerians.
“This measure is gladdening and a thing of pride that the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the international community have applauded the measures taken by Nigeria in protecting the lives of its citizens against the disease.
“ALGON suggests that the Federal Government should ensure that the 774 health centres built across the country are immediately put to use to serve as centres for the treatment of such ailments.
“ALGON hopes that the Federal Government, under the leadership of Goodluck Jonathan, will sustain the spirit with which it is fighting the killer disease and use the same zeal and determination to tackle the country’s numerous challenges.
“The association implores Nigerians to join hands in tackling issues that threaten our collective interests as a people, irrespective of our political and sectional interests.”
