Ebola: Lagos State Government Donates N50million To First Consultant Hospital

The Lagos State Government has announced through its Commissioner for Health, Dr. Jide Idris, its decision to present N50 million to First Consultant Medical Centre, Obalende, where Mr Patrick Sawyer, the man who brought Ebola to Nigeria died. This information was revealed at a joint media conference in Alausa, Ikeja. Dr Idris also disclosed that an undisclosed amount will be given to other Ebola causalities and survivors in the state as business support gesture. He said;


“Having addressed the human angle in containing the outbreak, there is now the need to address the economic consequences. Under consideration are the following: Support to the affected persons including those alive and N50million lump sum as business support gesture to the First Consultant Medical Centre. This is with view to getting the people/businesses back on their feet and for businesses to re-secure patronage of their customers. It needs clearly be stated that this is not an attempt at compensation but a gesture of goodwill on the part of government.”
