President Mahama wants collective efforts against Ebola

President John Dramani Mahama on Thursday appealed to Heads of State in the West African sub region to spearhead the fight against Ebola in order to attract international sympathy.

He said: "We cannot and must not leave them as the disease found them... And the devastations in those countries should not signal the end of these countries".

President Mahama said this when he opened the Extraordinary session of the Economic Community of West African States(ECOWAS) Authority of Heads of State and Government in Accra.

The session, which is at the behest of President Mahama, the ECOWAS Chairman, is to present and consider a memorandum of the Commission on the situation of Ebola in the sub-region.
