  1. Please every nigerian hould intensify efforts to elighten d public. Today I printed 100 fliers on ebola, its symtom hw it can be contacted,and how it can be prevented.share across MDAs. Not expensive but will go a long way. everyone shd do same.

  2. I think all our border towns, should be well secured.to avoid more entrance of affected people.even Our citizens that are coming back frm affected nations should b tested.i must thank govt at all levels for all they are doing to curtail the spread of EVD. Lord Jesus Christ will give us victory soon.
