That's the problem blaming innocent rats, is it rats that travelled to Edo State? People should be wary of people especially people that have just arrived from highly affected regions and people with fevers. I don't understand why the government will not on go an ebola like awareness

Sometimes, I sit in my chair thinking about my life and how I have spent it all so far. Tonnes of regrets, joyful memories and better understanding of life itself. I think it is all vanity upon vanity truly.

Symptoms of poor environmental management and sustainability practices.
This is a state of emergency!
There has to be a revamp of drainage and canals management, waste water and solid waste management.
Public Services Department please do something.
