"“Presently there is no case of Ebola in Nigeria, nobody in Nigeria has Ebola now. All the people that had the symptoms of Ebola have recovered. Out of 19, we lost seven and the others have recovered. Yes, there are a few people we are observing,” he said.

The President, however, noted that in spite of the efficient management of the disease in Nigeria, there may still be a reoccurrence as the disease was still being battled in other West African countries such as Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.

“The likelihood that characters like the late (Patrick Sawyer, the Liberian-American who brought the disease to Nigeria) can come in one way or the other is also open. But government is also very mindful of that. Presently, our airports are properly protected. If Sawyer were to arrive Nigeria now, no Nigerian would have contracted Ebola because of the level of preparation,” Mr. Jonathan assured.
