African Union Plays Impartial Arbiter Role – Envoy Solaja

The Special Representative of the Chairperson of the African Union Commission (AUC), Ambassador Oluwatoyin Solaja, has noted that the Union is playing its role as a fearless counselor, keeper of peace and an impartial arbiter.
According to a Ministry of Foreign Affairs release, Solaja pointed out that the worth of the AU is being felt in places like South Sudan, Central African Republic, Mali, Somalia and Burundi.
“When the Ebola Virus broke out in Liberia in March 2014, and intensified in August, the African Union was galvanized into action in September to assist in curbing the disease. This saw the birth of the African Union support to Ebola in West Africa (ASEOWA),” he emphasized.
According to him, the AU contributed over 822 medical doctors, epidemiologists, nurses, lab technicians as well as data volunteer health workers to the Ebola fight in Liberia, Sierra Leone ad Guinea from across Africa .
He said the AU Health Team did not only treat Ebola patients, but also trained 2,227 international and local medical personals in the art of handling the Ebola Virus.
Ambassador Solaja noted that in support of its commitment to the Pan-African cause and African solidarity, 25 AU medical personnel will remain in Liberia to assist with post-Ebola basic medical health services.
