“I stand by my words” – Gov. Yari Insists Meningitis Outbreak has a Spiritual Undertone | WATCH



Governor Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara state has said that he stands by his words on the outbreak of meningitis in he country.

Yari had said that is was responsible for the recent outbreak.

The governor was accused of not adequately planning for the outbreak even after series of warnings from the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) in Zamfara.

Zamfara is the worst hit in the outbreak as over 200 of the more than 336 deaths recorded are from the state.

While speaking at the Kaduna State Investment Summit on Wednesday, Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, said that the statement was “Islamically incorrect”.

“I stand by my words that if people do not change, God will not change for them. Therefore, I will answer the Emir perfectly and give him the Quran content of the Hadith where I belong to and where I have my fact.

For instance, I made mention that in the past we have Type A, which vaccines have been brought and they have vaccinated over four million doses in 2011.

We are now having Type B and Type C which they don’t even know. At the Centre for Disease Control in Chicago where we get our vaccines from, they only have five million,” he said.
