Ebola: Jonathan Jets Off To Accra For ECOWAS Meeting

President Goodluck Jonathan will on Thursday join other leaders of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) in Accra, Ghana, for an Emergency Summit on the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) which is still ravaging Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea.

A statement issued by the President’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati, said the emergency summit will also be attended by representatives of the United Nations and the World Health Organisation.

The meeting, it said, will seek greater international support and collaboration for the containment of the Ebola outbreak.

Jonathan will be accompanied to the summit by the Supervising Minister of Health, Dr. Khaliru Alhassan and the Director of the National Centre for Disease Control, Dr. Abdulsalami Nasidi.

The President is expected to avail the gathering of the benefit of Nigeria’s successful containment of the virus after it entered the country in July this year through a traveller from Liberia.

He will return to Abuja at the conclusion of the one-day summit.
