Minister Confirms Screening At Abuja Airport

The Honourable Minister of Health, Professor Isaac Adewole, has paid an unscheduled visit to the Port-Health Service stand of the Nnamdi International Airport Abuja, today May 28th, 2018.

 

The visit was part of the Minister’s effort to ensuring that screening measures are heightened and health security infrastructures are strengthened particularly at all ports of entry. It was also to allay the fear entertained by the public that  medical teams were not on hand at points of entry to screen and monitor movement into the country  to keep the recent Ebola outbreak in DRC at bay.

 

Watching passengers through a Monitoring/Screening gadget as they arrived via African World Airline from Accra, Ghana, the Minister maintained that the Federal Ministry of Health and her Agencies were committed to ensuring the health and safety of all Nigerians by making sure no disease including Ebola was imported into the country. He added that Nigeria is better prepared to effectively prevent, detect and respond to infectious disease at all times.

 

Reaffirming the on-going screening activity, the Airport Manager, Mr. Sanni Mahmud, said that screening of passengers had not stopped at any time as it is an essential element of security checks put in place to safe-guard the country from diseases afflicting other countries.
