Yesterday evening,Nigeria recorded first dead Ebola case of a senior consultant physician, Dr Adadevoh. She was infected by late Liberian-American Ebola victim “Patrick Sawyer”.
Stella Damasus, in her opinion, ask the Federal Government as well as the Cross River State Government, the World Health Organization and the United Nations to give a National Posthumous award in memory of the doctor.
she says, “Kind and beautiful Dr. Ameyo Stella Adadevoh stood her ground to protect Nigeria. She refused to allow Mr.
Patrick Sawyer (the Liberian-American infected with the Ebola Virus) leave First Consultant Hospital even when the Liberian Ambassador pressured her to release him.
Imagine what would have happened if she had let him go. Ebola would have been more widespread in Nigeria than what we are dealing with now. She died on the evening of the 19th of August 2014 and I strongly believe she deserves a National Posthumous Award.
If we don’t celebrate people like this who sacrifice their lives to save others then please tell me why any of us should do the same.
