Ebola: Why We Refused To Approve Nano Silva- FG + American Ambassador Praises Government


The Federal Government through the Minister of Health,
Professor Onyebuchi Chukwu, today gave reasons why it withheld its approval for
the Anti-Ebola drug Nano-Silver produced by a Nigerian scientist in the Diaspora.
While speaking with the American Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr
James Entwistle, in his office today, the minister revealed that the
experimental drug, was withheld because it did not meet the requirements of the
National Health Research Ethics Code.

In response to the minister, the ambassador, Mr James
Entwistle expressed his satisfaction in the way the nation has been handling
the Ebola crisis so far.
“You have all seen the headlines over the weekend, this is
an issue that we have to keep working hard on, it may be with us for a while
but there are some encouraging signs.
“Your government is doing a good job on contact tracing; I
noticed when I flew back here on Thursday night into the country, before I left
the plane I filed in the questionnaire.
“I was very impressed because I had to put in my seat number
which is a very good idea, so that if you have to trace the guy who was seating
next to me you will know where I am.
“I have been very impressed by this thing so I encourage the
government of Nigeria to keep at it, which I know they will,’’ he said.
