Regina Askia Volunteers To Fight Ebola In US

Ex Nigeria’s actress and beauty queen turned nurse Regina Askia Williams has announced on Facebook that she will volunteer at the US Ebola Center to help her colleagues fight the deadly tropical virus.
Askia, born in Lagos and currently working as a nurse in New York, said that no females volunteered adding that male colleagues demanded 200 dollars per hour for the job.
“My job was looking for Nurses to volunteer for the Ebola center which was moved from our building to another location. My male colleagues said they would do it for 200 dollars per hour, .C’mon Regina , gotta get on the team…they said. I was not smiling (I am captain of my 3 kid team). Not one female nurse volunteered (lol). We ALL had to demonstrate proper use of PPE equipment and be proficient with the Ebola protocol. I was full of thoughts as I watched the display, hoods, masks, gowns, boots….almost like a nightmare.
Askia left the shores of Nigeria for the U.S. a couple of years back to settle down with Williams, a black American whom The Street Journal learnt; she met in a Supermarket in New York.
She had gone to visit her daughter who was schooling in the U.S when the prolific actress ‘jammed’ her heartthrob.
She has since then settled down in the U.S with her hubby.
