The governor of Zamfara, Abdulaziz Yari, has reacted to the current meningitis outbreak in the Northern part of the country attributing it to God’s anger on the people for engaging in fornication.
Governor Yari said that God decided to send Type C virus of the disease which have claimed over 300 lives because people have refused to stop their nefarious activities.
Yari made this remark on Tuesday when he spoke with state house correspondents after meeting with President Buhari in Abuja state villa.
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.”
