Benin Pledge To Send Medical Practitioners to Liberia to assist in Ebola fight

By Wilfred Gortor

MONROVIA January 8 (LINA)-The President of Benin Thomas Yayi Boni, has said that Benin will “in a few weeks time”  send medical practitioners to assist Liberia in fighting the Ebola virus.

Boni noted that the primary objective of every member state of the African Union (AU) is to assist in the eradication of the Ebola virus from Africa.

He made the statement Wednesday at a news conference held at the Roberts International Airport (RIA), in Margibi County when he along with President Mahamadou Issoufou of Niger paid a one day solidarity visit to Liberia.   

“We want to join you in this fight because it is important that as a member of the sub-regional organization it is our obligated to help you fight this disease.”

Boni alluded to the efforts being made by members of the AU and other partners as an endeavor to galvanize more financial assistance and putting forth sensitization programs to help Liberia and other affected nations to combat the Ebola virus.

He also stressed the need for a rapid economic recovery process which will accelerate the country’s growth rate in a direction that will afford self sufficiency for Liberia.

Meanwhile, Boni has called on President Sirleaf to continue her good leadership role and remain focus as the country strives to eradicate the Ebola virus.

“Benin will always show solidarity to Liberia because the country must keep on fighting while at the same time exhibiting good leadership role, if we hope to achieve stability in the economy of Liberia, we have to join hands and eradicate Ebola.” Boni stated.
