President Goodluck Jonathan has called for strategic collaboration among West African countries to control and contain the Ebola Virus, with a view to checking its spread and further threat to human lives.
The president made the call on Tuesday, when he received the new Ambassador of Guinea to Nigeria, Mr. Gaoussou Toure, who presented his letters of credence to the president at the Presidential Villa.
Jonathan commended the containment measures so far taken by West African countries that have been affected by the disease.
“A problem that affects one of us affects all. We may need to come together as a region to strengthen our containment measures. I am however pleased that serious measures are being taken to control the spread of the disease,” Jonathan said.
