The All Progressives Congress (APC) has asked President Goodluck Jonathan and his party, the PDP, to stop taking credit for the country?s successful containment of the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD), saying it amounts to sheer dishonesty for the duo to turn what was a collective effort to a PDP campaign issue.

In a statement issued in London on Sunday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party said President Jonathan and his party were wrong to have appropriated the credit for the successful containment of the EVD without giving due credit to the real heroes of the successful battle: Dr. Stella Adadevoh and her colleagues at the First Consultant Hospital; officials of the Ministries of Health in Lagos and Rivers States , as well as patriotic Nigerian volunteers, among others.

It described as a cheap shot and a shameless venture the President?s decision to make the Ebola success story a campaign issue during a PDP rally in Benin, giving the impression that only the PDP deserves the credit for the successful containment of the disease.

APC said while indeed Health Minister, Onyebuchi Chukwu exhibited the kind of professionalism and purposefulness that are not common with the Jonathan Administration during the battle against Ebola, it will be uncharitable for the PDP-led Federal Government to pretend as if the government of the two affected states did nothing.

The party reminded President Jonathan that the two states hit by Ebola, Lagos and Rivers, were APC states, and that the promptness, purposefulness, doggedness and determination shown by the Governors of the states contributed largely to the successful containment of the virulent disease.
