Zamfara Gov Says God Sent Meningitis To Punish Nigerians For Their Sins

Abdulaziz Yari, governor of Zamfara state, says the outbreak of “stereotype C” meningitis is God’s way of pouring his anger on Nigerians.

With 213 deaths, Zamfara is the worst hit state in the outbreak of the disease.

Last week, Chikwe Ihekweazu, CEO of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), disclosed that the vaccines for the new strand of the disease were not commercially available.

But Yari, who advised Nigerians to make their ways right, expressed optimism that the situation would be contained.

The governor said this at the presidential villa in Abuja after meeting President Muhammdu Buhari.

“The most important thing is for our people to know that their relationship with God is not smooth. All they need to do is repent and everything will be all right..

“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.

“No way fornication will be so rampant and God will not send a disease that cannot be cured.”

Una don hear? Change your ways o before Type Z go come. Smiles!

  5. Hahahah, olu yourcomment cracked me up.

  6. Really? cannot believe this is coming from.a governor

  7. Sir, He May Be Right In A Way. You Know His State (Zamfara) Has The Highest Deaths So Far, According To Reports. So, May Be It's Because Of His Sins And That Of His People's.

  8. Let him keep shut of his mouth why not Western world where sins are their hobbies.provide healthy environment and see if disease outbreaks will occur.

  9. Illiteracy is a sin. Having an governor who in his ignorance relates disease outbreak to sin is the greatest sin committed by good people of Zamfara. Why haven't him gotten the disease?
