God Sent Meningitis To Punish Nigeria Because We Turned Our Back On HIM-- Zamfarawa State Governor Yari

The Zamfarawa State Governor, Abdulaziz Yari believed the outbreak of Type C Celebrospinal Meningitis in Nigeria is intentionally allowed for showing our back on Him that is one of His way to punish us.

Mr. Yari said this on Tuesday, April 4 while speaking with journalists at the presidential Villa Abuja shortly after meeting with President Muhammdu Buhari.
Zamfara is the worst hit state since the outbreak of the disease, with over 200 persons killed and several others receiving treatment at various hospitals and clinics.
The Nigeria Medical Association in Zamfara had last weekend accused the government of Mr. Yari of failing to prepare for the outbreak of the despite warnings, and not responding adequately to the epidemic.
Mr. Yari however said the outbreak might not be unconnected to the people’s total disregard of God’s commandments.
“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.
Dispelling insinuations that his government failed to act accordingly, Mr. 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”.
The governor express the hope that the outbreak would eventually be tackled, but, said “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.”
