There Is No Greater Demonstration Of Love Than To Lay Down Your Life For Another

 

For The Greater Public Good,’ – Dr Ameyo Stella Adadevoh

 

The perception of Nigerians around the world is at an all-time low. Let’s change the negative narrative of who we are as Nigerians by honouring our heroes & heroines.

 

Sign the petition and join your voice to call on Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari, in accordance with the National Honours Act of 1964, to confer on late Doctor Ameyo Stella Adadevoh and her brave medical team the National Honours they deserve for their sacrifice for Nigeria. 

 

On 27 October 2019, #DrAdadevohGCFR would have turned 63. She was the doctor who detected Nigeria’s first Ebola Virus Disease case in Patrick Sawyer, a diplomat who arrived Lagos, Nigeria, for an international conference in July 2014. 

 

Despite great personal risk, sustained threats, and mounting international pressure, #DrAdadevohGCFR restrained and prevented the diplomat from leaving the hospital and infecting Nigeria's population of almost 200 million people. 

 

Just over five years ago, on 19 August 2014, #DrAdadevohGCFR succumbed and died from the Ebola killer disease. 

 

On 20 October 2019, Nigeria will mark 5 years that the World Health Organisation declared the country free from the Ebola Virus Disease that killed over 11,300 people in West Africa between 2014-2016. 

 

Because of #DrAdadevohGCFR, Nigeria recorded only 8 painful deaths in Africa’s most populous nation. She is a True Heroine that represents the best of who we are as Nigerians

 

President Buhari would, by conferring National Honours on #DrAdadevohGCFR and her medical team, be ensuring that their selfless sacrifice for country and mankind is gazetted in Nigeria's records for posterity; never to be forgotten by future generations to come.

 

Together. Take Action. Sign The Petition. Spread The Call.
