The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) says it has put measures in place at the nation’s airports to prevent spread of the dreaded Ebola disease.
FAAN said in a statement signed by its General Manager, Corporate Affairs, Mrs. Henrietta Yakubu in Lagos, that adequate measures have been put in place by the Authority to checkmate the re-occurrence of any such outbreak in Nigeria.
She emphasized that all measures adopted in 2014 to curtail the dreaded virus is very much in place and has been fortified.
The Authority assured passengers and airport users of safety at the nation’s airports as the World Health Organization announces the outbreak of EBOLA in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
“The EBOLA Screening Points and detecting machines have been fully re-instated 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 Sensitization Campaign,” Yakubu said.
The FAAN spokesperson, who assured that there is no outbreak of EBOLA in Nigeria or at any Nigerian airport, however implored passengers and airport users to go about their business activities without fear.
