    To be honest, if this whole scare results in people being a lot more careful about the hygeine issues surrounding the food they consume, I don’t think it’s any bad thing. Containment is key and we’re all have a part to play in limiting the spread of the virus.

    A ba! They should stop killing the poor animals. Finally, they will be able to roam freely and enjoy themselves without being slaughtered by humans. We will survive without bush meat joor!

      Continue se you hear, chop am well when ebola strikes you and blood comes out of the teeth you use to chop the bush meat, then you will know if eating bush meat is worth your life. I am sure the victims of ebola if given a choice between bush meat and their lives they will readily opt for life. If you think this ebola containment is only for the government and health workers, you are wrong o my brother, it is for all Nigerians. So in what ever way you can help do your own part o and educate other like you who say they dont care. Prevention is always better than cure

    • Sha tell ur ppl 2 extend an invite 2 me when ur gone. Om 2nd thought, I’ll pass, b4 I get ebola at d funeral.

    Why are we sooo stubborn for crying out loud … i can’t even start to vent or … mehn! All i have to say is, nigerians and africans as a whole contribute to their own problems . Its high time we stopped pointing fingers at the government and start asking ourself about how we contribute positively to situations around us. #thats all

      My dear, na so we Naija people be, that stubbornness is in our blood O! Na so so gra gra which is good for positive things but we dont know when to apply it for our own safety. They think ebola is just a nursery rhyme like Humpty Dumpty. Or maybe they think it is none of their own business as usual they heap blame on GEJ and the government refusing to reflect and look inward. Ebola containment is in the hands of every Nigerian o! Let us use our Naija attitude to fight this thing collectively becuase ebola doesnt know anyone o!
