ACF Hails FG On Ebola, Calls ForSimilar Commitment In Fight AgainstInsurgency

The pan-northern socio-political
organization, the Arewa Consultative Forum,
ACF, has commended the Federal
Government on its feat in containing the
spread of the deadly Ebola virus, which
earned the country accolades from the World
Health Organisation.
The Forum, however, urged the Federal
Government and Nigerians to commit such
zeal and determination with which the virus
was stopped, to put an end to the ravaging
insurgency in the Northeastern part of
Nigeria.
Speaking through its National Publicity
Secretary, Muhammed Ibrahim in a
statement in Kaduna State on Wednesday,
ACF said it received with great relief the
news that Nigeria has been certified Ebola
free by the WHO.
The statement read in part: “The ACF
received with great relief the news that the
WHO has certified Nigeria free of the deadly
Ebola virus that found its way into the
country through one Liberian called Dr.
Sawyer who had the Ebola disease and died
in Lagos.
“The virus created a threatening scenario to
the Nation. However, with the efforts of the
Lagos state government, prompt and total
support of the Federal Government and
concurrent actions of states government,
health institutions and agencies, the threat
posed by the Ebola virus was effectively
contained.
“ACF reiterates its call on Government and
all Nigerians to demonstrate similar
commitment and spirit towards the security
challenges facing the country especially the
insurgency in the North-East region in order
to restore peace and normalcy in the affected
states of Borno, Yobe and Adamawa”.
