ebolaaThe Peoples Democratic Party has commended the gallantry of Nigerians and government at all levels for the successful eradication of the Ebola Virus Disease in the country as confirmed by the World Health Organization (WHO) on Monday.

National publicity secretary of PDP, Olisa Metuh in a statement on Monday said “the eradication of the dreaded disease is a confirmation that the nation can overcome all its challenges no matter how insurmountable or tough they may appear”.

The ruling party also lauded the synergy between the federal and state governments as well as critical institutions of government and the private sector across board in the fight against the infectious disease.

The party specifically commended Nigerian health workers at all levels for their sense of patriotism, sacrifice and professionalism in tackling the disease while paying tributes to those who sacrificed their lives in the effort to curb the spread of Ebola in the country.

The statement noted that the unity of purpose displayed by Nigerians in the fight against Ebola confirms the triumph of the Nigerian spirit and that their differences are merely artificial.

The party emphasized that credit must also be given to the Nigerian spirit, which it said binds the citizens together in the face of challenges.

The statement, therefore, urged the people to resist every attempt to weaken this “spirit for which we are respected by the entire world”, the PDP said.
