    Well, sorry to say this but I think Ebonyi State is a not too interesting place to visit at least for now. Maybe till when the dust of this cholera outbreak that has qualified about 76 people for six-feet below the Earth calm down first.

    My sincere heartfelt sympathy to the bereaved families of the deceased.
    May God heal Ebonyi State. May God heal Nigeria.

    My strolling continues for more games….

    @D Hunter, I think almost along the same line. I don’t know why of all the 5 Igbo states, Ebonyi is ravaged with outhreak of diseases like a northern state. It pains me. I don’t intend disrespect here, but I think the reason lies in the people. They just have to embark upon a massive Ebonyi-State-wide crusade/campaign on personal/community hygiene.
