Nigeria may suffer Ebola outbreak soon – Reps warn

Members of the House of Representatives has warned that Nigeria may suffer another Ebola crisis if measures were not quickly put in place.

The lawmakers said the federal government is not doing enough to prevent another outbreak of the deadly viral disease which is currently ravaging the Democratic Republic of Congo

The lawmakers said this while debating on two motions during Tuesday plenary, the first on the need to put adequate measures regarding the “looming reoccurrence” of the Ebola crisis in Nigeria, and secondly, on the need to honour late Stella Adadevoh

According to the lawmakers, Nigeria is close to Congo and if measures were not put in place, the virus might find its way back into Nigeria.

Paschal Obi, chairman of the house committee on health institutions who sponsored the first motion, said although relevant agencies stepped up to stop the spread of the virus in 2018, little or nothing is being done now
