Nigeria's Federal Government has finally announced N200 million (yes, Two hundred million naira) to the Lagos State Government as intervention fund to fight Ebola!

... contrast this with some N11billion expended Osun State elections ... some still in some private pockets?

... And now, some official tributes on the passage of Dr. Stella Ameyo Adadevoh:

... The Federal Minister of Health, Prof. Onyebuchi Chukwu says:

" ... Indeed she had to physically restrain this infected person from escaping from the hospital, when the later attempted to do so having been communicated that he was Ebola positive.

Indeed, if that index case had escaped from the hospital at that stage, it would have spell disaster for Nigeria, as many more persons would have been very difficult to track down.

There is no doubt that Dr. Adadevoh was not only dedicated, committed and a competent doctor, but she showed rare courage, a rare sense of duty, service and patriotism to her country,”

... The Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Jide Idris has been full of praise for the late doctor, recalling that Dr. Adadevoh led the team who attended to the index case and her doggedness and commitment saw her personally review the case even thought the patient had earlier been seen by a doctor.

Says he:

“.... we recorded the death of the Senior Consultant/Endocrinologist of First Consultant Hospital, Obalende Lagos- Dr. Stella Shade Ameyo Adadevoh.

She, it was, who took the initiative to intimate the ministry concerning the index case and substantially to her credit, the moderate containment achieved we owe to her and her colleagues.

No doubt, she and other affected health workers are our heros and heroines of the day ...”

Adieu, Dr. Ameyo Adadevoh, our truly unforgettable and selfless servant of the people.

'Unforgettable', that is what you are, and indeed will continue to be in our hearts. Your sacrificial 'labour of love' will not be in vain.

But, God Rules!
