Ebola Outbreak: Community In Abuja, FCT Minister At Loggerheads Over Siting Of Treatment Centre


Residents of Kuje Area Council in the nation’s capital Abuja
are at logger heads with the FCT Minister over the siting of Ebola treatment
centre within the General Hospital premises.

While speaking on behalf of the residents, Ishaku Shaban
Tete, the Chairman of the community expressed dismay at the decision of the FCT
Minister, Bala Mohammed to site the centre within the council.

“Bringing Ebola centre to such crowded hospital will amount
to mass murder because if it catches one person, be rest assured that it will
spread rapidly to all the residents,” the chairman said.
The Minister while replying Mr Ishaku said he would hold him
responsible if the project fails.
The youths in the community are also angry and are solidly
behind their chairman. “We are ready to lay down our lives for the welfare and
health of the people of Kuje, instead of allowing such thing happen with our
eyes wide opened,” they said.
