“If somebody is dead, leave him there” | GEJ was on FIRE yesterday, see our top 7 quotes

by Kolapo Olapoju


Speaking publicly for the first time since the outbreak of the Ebola virus disease in Nigeria, President Goodluck Jonathan didn’t mince words in his disgust at the late Patrick Sawyer, who deliberately brought Ebola to Nigeria.

The President made the statement at the annual Interfaith Conference in Abuja on Monday, 11 August, and here are the sharpest points of his statement;

“As a government, we promise that we will do everything humanly possible to contain the Ebola virus.”

“On Wednesday, I will meet with governor of the states, and they must come along with their commissioners of Health.”

“We must make sure that every state is prepared, where they lack, the federal government will support them,”

“It is unfortunate that one mad man brought Ebola to us, but we have to contain it.”

“His country asked him not to leave the country, let them observe him, but the crazy man decided to leave and found his way here.”

“My conversation with the WHO DG, Dr Margaret Chan was revealing, she said 60 per cent of the transmission was spread during burials.”

“Some people like burial ceremonies. This is not the time for burial ceremony, somebody is dead, he is dead, leave him there. This is not the best time for those ceremonies.”
