President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has called for strategic collaboration

among West African countries to control and contain the Ebola Virus

Disease in order to check its spread and further threat to human lives.

President Jonathan stated this today while receiving in audience the new

Ambassador of Guinea to Nigeria, Mr. Gaoussou Toure who presented his

letters of credence to the President at the State House, Abuja.

President Jonathan commended the containment measures so far taken by West

African countries that have been affected by the disease stressing that

more concerted intra-regional cooperation and action needs to be

developed.
“A problem that affects one of us affects all. We may need to come

together as a region to strengthen our containment measures. I am however

pleased that serious measures are being taken to control the spread of

the disease,” President Jonathan said.
Ambassador Gaoussou Toure had earlier thanked President Jonathan for the

financial assistance given to Guinea by Nigeria for tackling the (Ebola)

disease and assured him that Guinea is deploying containment measures to

combat the outbreak. He reaffirmed Guinea's commitment to strengthening

the country's cordial relations with Nigeria.
Also speaking at separate audiences after receiving letters of credence

from the new Ambassador of Germany, Michael Peter Zenner and Torben

Antonio Gettermann, the new Ambassador of Denmark, President Jonathan

stated that the days of electoral violence in Nigeria are over and that

the 2015 general elections will be free and fair.
President Jonathan called on the two Ambassadors to use their positions to

strengthen the existing trade relations between their countries and

Nigeria.
