Nigeria Ebola Hero, Dr Adadevoh Receives Posthumous Award

Dr. Ameyo Stella Adadevoh and First Consultants Hospitals where she worked until her death have won the 2014 Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) Integrity award with a cash prize of N2.5m each.

Ms Arunma Oteh, the Director- General of SEC said that the award was the Commission’s contributions towards the promotion, recognition and reward for integrity. Dr Kolade Christopher, Former Chairman of Subsidy Re-Investment Programme (SURE-P) who spoke at the Integrity award night held as part of the Capital Market Committee (CMC) Retreat in Abuja, called on the federal government to find ways of honouring Dr Adadevoh. He said: “It is important for us to come away from the territory of inadequate sense of what is right. In this
county, where doctors have problems with employers, they withdraw their service so that patients will die.” 

Also speaking at the event, Simon Tasie of First Consultant Hospital said that we “must live up to our 
individual and collective responsibility so that in 50 years time we will live to remember what Adedevoh has done.”
