Ebola Crisis: Edo State Governor - Oshiomhole sensitises market women on Ebola


Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State, recently, held a sensitisation meeting with market women in the state on precautionary measures to take to stop the spread of the dreaded Ebola Virus Disease in the state.

Speaking at the meeting with the market women in Benin City, Oshiomhole said, “the meeting today is two parts: First, to tell you about the Ebola disease that was brought from another country to Lagos.


We thank God that the disease has not come to Edo State. The disease is difficult to manage and so I am advising you as leaders of market women to talk to your members to be wary of whom they shake or embrace because the disease causes serious sickness that can lead to death at short notice.

Because of this, it is good that we should know what to do as people travel to different parts of the country. People walk about and we do not know those who are infected.

That is why we must be prepared and plan so that if anybody sees any victim, he or she should know what to do.”
