Get Rid Of Boko Haram Like You Did To Ebola – NLC To FG



Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) President, Comrade Abdul Waheed Omar, today assured Nigerian citizens that if the Federal Government battled the Boko Haram menace the way they fight Ebola Virus Disease in the country, Terror will end.
Omar was talking in Kaduna during a one-day sensitization workshop on the prevention of Ebola virus disease in the workplace, organized by National Union of Textile, Garment and Tailoring Workers of Nigeria (NUTGTWN).
He said:“I think if Federal Government should fight Boko Haram the way it is fighting Ebola, then the insurgency would have ended since. “Therefore I call on the government to be as proactive to Boko Haram as it has done to Ebola.”
NUTGTWN President,  Comrade Oladele Hunsu said:  there is need for continuous enlightenment and sensitization on Ebola. “As deadly as the Ebola virus disease is, we should not forget there are other diseases like malaria, polio, cholera which are curable but are still rampant in the country. Thus as we battle with the deadly Ebola Virus Disease, we should do more with other diseases with known treatment/prevention. It is all about good health care and good governance.
“We commend the recent resolution of the crisis in the health sector that led to the calling off of strike action by doctors under Nigeria Medical Association. We are also impressed that the Federal government has withdrawn the earlier retrenchment of the doctors,” he stated
The Ebola virus was brought into the country by Liberian, Patrick Sawyer and the Federal Government reaction to the Virus has been so effective that it has been praised by the United Nations for a great job.
Meanwhile the Boko Haram menace has been going on for more than 5 years now with the FG making less to no development in the fight
