God sent meningitis to punish Nigerians – Zamfara governor

by Azeez Adeniyi

Zamfara state governor, Abdulaziz Yari on Tuesday said the outbreak of Type C Cerebrospinal Meningitis was God’s way of punishing Nigerians.

Yari said this on Tuesday while speaking with journalists at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, shortly after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari.

The governor said God is unleashing his wrath on Nigerians for turning their back on him.

“What we used to know as far as meningitis is concerned is the Type A virus. The World Health Organisation, WHO, has carried out vaccinations against this Type A virus not just in Zamfara, but many other states.

“However, because people refused to stop their nefarious activities, God now decided to send Type C virus, which has no vaccination.

“People have turned away from God and he has promised that ‘if you do anyhow, you see anyhow’ that is just the cause of this outbreak as far as I am concerned.

“There is no way fornication will be so rampant and God will not send a disease that cannot be cured,” the governor said.

He also dispelled insinuations that his government failed to act accordingly.

Yari said he called an emergency meeting comprising of all top state and local government officials and traditional rulers, adding that “the meeting came out with a strategy to be adopted and the money required to deal with the outbreak and a lot of work is going on”.
