An appeal has been placed before the European Union and other Development Partners to support the fight against the deadly Ebola virus.
President John Mahama, made this appeal on behalf of the Economic Community for West African States (ECOWAS) on Friday, 10th October, 2014, when he met with the new head of EU, Mr. William Hanna at the Flagstaff House.
The fight against Ebola has become a global despondency and although President Mahama acknowledges the support of the west to counties afflicted with the disease, he pleaded for more support in order to curb its spread.
President Mahama said it is unfair for countries such as Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone to be ostracized while plagued by the deadly disease and gave the assurance that he would continue to use his position as the Chairman of ECOWAS to seek support for the sub-region.
On Ghana's relations with the EU, President Mahama said the Union had over the years supported Ghana in her development agenda and called for closer links in the area of agriculture, which is the backbone of the economy.
