The All Progressives Congress, APC has called on President Goodluck Jonathan to immediately halt the rallies being organized across the nation in his support by the Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria, TAN, saying the rallies are jeopardizing Nigeria’s efforts to control the spread of Ebola.
Lai Mohammed, National publicity secretary of the APC disclosed this in a statement issued in Ilorin, Kwara State, on Thursday, August 28 stating that TAN rallies for his re- election is endangering the lives of Nigerians in this Ebola period.
It said the President must in particular ensure that the rally slated for Port Harcourt on Saturday is stopped, in view of the spread of the Ebola virus to the Rivers capital and the fact that 100 people have been placed under surveillance there following the death of a medical doctor from a suspected Ebola disease in the city.
“If TAN goes ahead to organize its rally in Port Harcourt, can anyone guarantee that none of those who have had contact with the medical doctor will attend? It can only be better imagined the kind of danger that those who will attend the rally will be subjected to. Therefore, President Jonathan has a historic opportunity to put the well being of his compatriots above politics, for once,” the statement said.Follow Us on Social Media
