To keep Ebola away from Nigeria, the Federal Executive Council (FEC) on Wednesday directed the Federal Ministry of Health to step up surveillance against Ebola.
The Minister of Health, Isaac Adewole briefed State House correspondents at the end of FEC meeting chaired by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
According to him, the Council ordered steps to be taken to keep the Ebola outbreak in Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) from coming to Nigeria.
He said that part of the new measures to be taken is screening passengers coming into the country.
“We want to assure Nigerians that the government is determined to keep the country safe.” he said.
