In a statement issued yesterday by its National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, the party said President Jonathan and his party were wrong to have appropriated the credit for the successful containment of the EVD without giving due credit to Dr. Stella Adadevoh and her colleagues at the First Consultant Hospital, who were the real heroes of the successful battle.
APC said officials of the ministries of health in Lagos and Rivers states and the patriotic Nigerian volunteers, need to be appreciated first for their roles in the containment.
“The cities of Lagos and Port Harcourt are perhaps the largest metropolis to have ever been hit by the EVD since the first outbreak was recorded in the Democratic Republic of Congo almost 40 years ago, and any mishandling of the disease could have spelt disaster not just for the cities but for the country as a whole.
“But the ever-dogged and determined Governors Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State and Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers States employed the same winning strategies that have stood their states out of the pack and quickly rose to the occasion, putting in place measures that ensured a quick curtailing of the EVD spread,” it explained.
