‘They have come again ooo, how can the poor man survive without drinking garri?’; I know this would be the thoughts of most of you reading this post now. But this is what the Lagos Council of the Medical and Health Workers Union want Nigerians to do.
“We are going to encourage members of the public to stop drinking gari at this moment, it is better that the cassava flour is utilised for ‘eba’ because of the use of hot water.
The Chairman of the union, Mr Razak Adeofolade, stated this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.
“We are waging total war and that is: ‘War against Rats,’ and that is what we are going to do to ensure we do not have another victim of Lassa fever in the state.
“We will also be telling them to ensure that their fruits and raw vegetables are properly washed if they must be consumed raw and cook to the appropriate temperature.
“The whole essence is to enlighten our people because education carries a lot of weight in this whole activity.
MY POINT: I Believe every Nigerian should do all it takes to protect himself or herself from the Lassa Fever outbreak, even if it means keeping away from unprotected, uncovered garri. The Union knows that a majority of Nigerians cannot confidently say no rat exist in their household, let alone that rats do not get to the source of the garri.
So, I also believe that we stay away from Drinking garri, except you are going to drink warm/hot garri… *winks*
Remember, Lassa Fever Is spreading fast… Beware and be cautious!!!
