The International President of Medecins Sans Frontieres, MSF, (doctors without borders), Joanne Liu, said in Geneva on Friday that it would take about six months to bring the Ebola epidemic in West Africa under control.

She said the situation was like “wartime’’ and required greater leadership from the World Health Organisation, WHO.

Ms. Liu, after a 10-day trip to Liberia, stressed that there should be an upper hand on the epidemic over the next six months.

Liu insisted that more experts were needed on the ground to achieve this.

    I like “whosoever we hire, we can fire”. This is all the lesson we want politicians to comprehend.

    This write up is rubbish, those in APC were once PDP members and even those that were not PDP members have once held one political position or the other without recording any substantial success. Both APC and PDP are same, both of them are just attacking them self’s without telling us what they will do if elected, aside stopping Boko-Haram by people that have been founding them secretly, what else, the corruption that they are talking about can only be eliminated by probing all our past leaders and not just starting from the surface.
