In Abuja, the Minister of Health, Prof. Onyebuchi Chukwu, said the Federal Government was considering a way of immortalising Adadevoh for her bravery and sense of patriotism.
He briefed State House correspondents on the highlights of the update on the virus which he presented at the weekly Federal Executive Council meeting presided over by President Jonathan.
Chukwu said but for the efforts of Adadevoh, Sawyer would have escaped from the FCMC and caused a disaster for the country.
He said, “Indeed, she had to physically restrain this infected person from escaping from the hospital when the latter attempted to do so having been communicated that he was ebola positive.
“Indeed, if that index case had escaped from the hospital at that stage, it would have spelt disaster for Nigeria. As many more persons (many of whom) would have been very difficult to track, could have become primary contacts.
“There is no doubt that Dr. Adadevoh was not only a dedicated, committed and competent doctor, she showed rare courage, sense of duty, service and patriotism to her country.”
