College rejects Nigerians due to Ebola

A Texas community college rejected two Nigerian applicants because of Ebola fears, reports CNBC.

Navarro College is 60 miles from Dallas, where a Liberian man died of Ebola and two nurses treating him were infected.

Kamorudeen Abidogun, a Texas man originally from Nigeria, said several of his relatives had applied to Navarro. “I received, last weekend, two rejection letters … saying the reason why they were not giving admission was … Ebola,” said Abidogun, a mechanical engineer.
