Ebola: No Passenger Checks At PH Airport –TUC



The Trade Union Congress (TUC) has chided the Federal Airports
Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) and the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority
(NCAA) for their inability to put something in place to check passengers
entering and leaving the Port Harcourt International Airport, Omagwa.

Chairman of TUC in Rivers State Comrade Hyginus Chika Onuegbu, in a
statement issued in Port Harcourt yesterday, expressed shock that
despite the confirmation of outbreak of Ebola virus disease (EVD) in
parts of Nigeria, the airport does not have even a temperature check
device.

Onuegbu said if the authorities of FAAN were up and doing, the
diplomat and staff of the Economic Community of West African States
(ECOWAS), Olu Ibikunle Koye, who imported Ebola from Lagos to Port
Harcourt, would have been detected.

He therefore appealed to the minister of health, Professor Onyebuchi
Chukwu, and his counterpart in the Ministry of Aviation, Chief Osita
Chidoka, to ensure that the complete facilities and processes employed
at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, were fully
deployed to the two airports in Port Harcourt.

The statement reads in part: “The Trade Union Congress of Nigeria
(TUC), Rivers State, is shocked that despite the confirmation of Ebola
virus disease(EVD) in Rivers State the authorities of Port Harcourt
International Airport have not put anything in place to check passengers
entering and leaving the airport. Not even the temperature check device
is in the airport.

“We view this as callous and irresponsible and immediately call on
the authorities of FAAN, NCAA and all agencies in the Port Harcourt
International Airport to immediately ensure that they check all
passengers entering and leaving the airport. We are tempted to think
that if the authorities of FAAN in Port Harcourt were up and doing,
perhaps the diplomat that imported Ebola from Lagos to Port Harcourt may
have been detected.

“We appeal to the hon. ministers for health and aviation to
immediately ensure that the complete facilities and processes employed
at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, are fully deployed
to the two airports in Port Harcourt.”
