Meanwhile, a Nigerian doctor, McGinger Ibeneme, once expressed sadness even though the African Union honoured him and his colleagues with medals for helping to stop the spread of Ebola virus across four African countries four years ago.

The countries are Nigeria, Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. Ibeneme, however, slammed the federal government of Nigeria for refusing to honour the late Stella Adadevoh and Justina Ejelonu, who he called heroines of the fight to stop the scourge in Nigeria by frustrating Liberian diplomat, Patrick Sawyer, from spreading the disease in Lagos.
