The Chair of the ECOWAS Authority of Heads of State and Government, President John Dramani Mahama, will today visit three West African countries – Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea – which have been affected by the outbreak of the Ebola virus disease.
The one-day visit will enable the ECOWAS Chair hold discussions with his colleague heads of state on available sub-regional and international interventions to support the countries in their effort to contain and manage the ebola outbreak.
With some countries and airlines discontinuing flights into the three countries, President Mahama has been leading a strong advocacy against any international isolation of the affected countries, as it will make relief and humanitarian assistance to infected persons difficult.
President Mahama has already decided to work with the United Nations to set up an international logistics centre in Accra to serve as the main hub for the fight against ebola in the West African sub-region.
President Mahama will, on behalf of the Government and people of Ghana, donate quantities of various Made in Ghana products to each country during the visit.
