This study primarily examines the effect of Ebola scare on organizational work performance in West Africa. Analysis in the study centres around Nigeria because of financial limitations of the researchers to visit other West African countries where an incident of Ebola infection was high. Organisational work performance indicators, such as: attendance, opening of business premises, customers’ patronage, production and service provision, as well as, employees turnover were critically analysed qualitatively through in-depth interview (ID). It was discovered that all the indications were negatively affected resulting in low or poor organizational performance. It was a descriptive study, which recommended that eradication of Ebola through the introduction of vaccine and actual vaccination is the only way out, which will eliminate Ebola scare for organizational performance to improve.
