By Prince Nagbe
MONROVIA, August 18 (LINA) – Deputy Information Minister for Administration, Norris Tweh, has called on Liberians to put aside their differences in fighting the common enemy Ebola that is causing havoc in the country.
Minister Tweh said the country needs the participation of every Liberian, with the government taking the lead, in the fight against this common enemy called Ebola.
He made the statement Monday at the ministry when he officially launched an Ebola awareness campaign to be carried out by12 organizations in Monrovia and its environs under the banner “Traditional Communicators”.
Tweh pointed out that the issue of the Ebola fight should not be left to government alone, noting that the Traditional Communicators have a key role to play, especially as they are going to be informing the communities about the disease through dramas and in the various vernaculars.
He said the issue of Ebola should be tackled by every sector of Liberia, noting, “what affects one part of Liberia affects the entire country and what affects one Liberian will affect every Liberian because we are all connected one way or the other”.
He thanked the Traditional Communicators for buttressing the government’s effort in curbing the spread of the virus by taking up “this worthwhile initiative” to sensitize communities within Monrovia about the danger, spread and prevention of the disease.
He pledged the ministry’s and the government’s support to the group, adding, “the government is in support of such great national initiative.”
