Ebola: NNPC shuts Lagos clinic

A KPMG report describes the NNPC as a cesspool of monumental corruption

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, on Friday ordered the indefinite closure of its staff clinic located at the Muri Okunola area of Victoria Island, Lagos.

The closure followed a suspected case of Ebola virus on admission at the clinic.

The Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division of the NNPC, Ohi Alegbe, said in a statement that it was discovered that the patient visited the First Consultant Medical Centre during the period the first Ebola case was reported at that clinic.

Mr. Alegbe explained that the pre-emptive step was taken after the case was duly reported to the Federal Ministry of Health as well as officials of the Lagos State Ministry of Health.

He said the medical team had assured that the patient was in stable condition.

A source at the NNPC told PREMIUM TIMES that the staff that visited the First Consultant Medical Centre went there to visit his wife. The hospital is where late Patrick Sawyer, the Liberian that died of the virus in Nigeria, died.

“The (NNPC) staff’s wife is said to be one of the nurses that was diagnosed of Ebola at the hospital,” the source told PREMIUM TIMES.

Mr. Alegbe did not provide details of the NNPC staff but said “in the meantime, all contacts with this case are being traced and adequate precautionary measures instituted to contain the possible spread of the disease.”

    This is the problem. Why not mention the names of whoever is infected so that those who have had contact with that person will be aware of their exposure and perhaps seek early medical advise and/or personally take the initiative of minimizing contact with people.

    This idea of withholding names is not helpful at all. This is a public emergency and privacy laws or ethics have exceptions where there is a threat to public safety. There can be no better exception than Ebola. Except of course, corruption in high places. Nonsense!

    FROM ALL INDICATIONS AND THE WAY POWER AND MONEY ARE BEING ILLEGALLY DEPLOYED AND OPENLY USED TO BRIBE DELEGATES TO SELECT AND IMPOSE PARTICULAR CANDIDATES IN THE PARTY PRIMARIES, THERE IS NO WAY PRINCIPLED AND POPULAR POLITICIANS CAN WIN AND REPRESENT THEIR RESPECTIVE PARTIES IN THE NEXT YEAR’S COMING ELECTIONS. THIS OPEN ILLEGALITY IS THE EQUIVALENT OF A CIVILIAN COUP D’ETAT AGAINST THE DEMOCRATIC ASPIRATIONS OF PATRIOTIC FORWARD LOOKING NIGERIANS AND NIGERIA. I THINK THIS IS THE RIGHT TIME FOR NIGERIANS TO RISE UP IN UNISON AGAINST THIS BLATANT DAY LIGHT RAPE ON DEMOCRACY OR ELSE WE ARE GOING TO BE FORCED TO RIDE ON THE BACK OF A VERY HUNGRY RAPACIOUS TIGER. IT IS HIGH TIME ALL NGOS,CIVIL SOCIETY GROUPS, STUDENTS’ BODIES, WORKERS, LECTURERS, UNIONS AND INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITIES CAME TO THE RESCUE OTHERWISE NIGERIANS ARE IN FOR IT AND FOR A LONG TIME TO COME AND IT MAY TAKE OVER 10 GENERATIONS TO GET THINGS RIGHT AGAIN.
