FAAN re-assures of safety as Ebola resurfaces in Congo
The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria has re-assured passengers and other airport users of their safety at the nation’s airports as the World Health Organisation announces the outbreak of EBOLA in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
In a statement released by the Authority’s acting General Manager, Corporate Affairs, Mrs Henrietta Yakubu in Lagos, the Authority noted that adequate measures were being taken to check the re-occurrence of any such outbreak in Nigeria.
She emphasised that all measures adopted in 2014 to curtail the spread of the dreaded virus were very much in place and would be fortified.
According to her, the EBOLA screening points and detecting machines were already been fully re-installed at the airports.
The Authority is also collaborating with the Federal Ministry of Health, through the Port Health Service to reactivate the EBOLA Awareness and Sensitisation Campaigns.
While stating that there was no outbreak of EBOLA in Nigeria or at any Nigerian airports, she implored passengers and airport users to go about their business without fear. ##
