Ebola: Nigeria Ambassador To Liberia Had No Contact With Dead Victim (Full Text Of Lagos Disclaimer)

We refer to the story with the aforementioned title carried in the local media Tuesday and wish to correct the error that Nigeria’s Ambassador to Liberia, Her Excellency, Mrs. Chigozie Obi-Nnadozie, was one of the persons that had contacts with the late Liberian with Ebola Virus who died in Lagos last Friday after flying into the country from Monrovia.

We have since learnt that the official who travelled to Nigeria with the victim and who was mistaken for Her Excellency the Nigerian Ambassador to Liberia was actually a representative of the ECOWAS President.

We hereby tender our unreserved apologies to Her Excellency for the inconveniencies this may have caused her both as an individual and a very high official and Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

We, however wish to state here that the error was made by the official of the Federal Government who was at the briefing on Monday and provided the information at the Lagos Secretariat, Alausa, Ikeja.
