Ayo Adesugba, Director Press and Public Relations in the Federal Ministry of Health, said President Buhari who is scheduled to address the gathering, will be represented by the Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Health Linus Awute.

The conference aims to bring together heads of government, ministers, experts, captains of industry and stakeholders to share experiences of their Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) containment and support efforts.

The major objective of the confab is to seek support for post-Ebola recovery and reconstruction in the region, especially for those countries that have been adversely affected by Ebola.

The World Health Organization certified Nigeria "Ebola Free" on October 20, 2014. It has been a reference point for successful Ebola containment response.

President Buhari is expected to share Nigeria's experience in EVD containment and the Country Response Plan against the unlikely event of another outbreak.
