- Omokri believes Yari is a disgrace and unworthy to remain as head of Governors Forum
- The former aide to Jonathan wondered why there was no meningitis during the ex-president's time if people also committed sins then as well
- Omokri had earlier slammed Yari for making such an impractical comment about a dangerous and fast-spreading disease
Reno Omokri, former aide on new media to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, has slammed Nigerian governors over comments made by Zamfara governor Abdul Aziz Yari on the Meningitis outbreak in Nigeria.
In series of tweets on Thursday, April 6, Omokri, still disappointed at Yari’s comments about Meningitis coming from God, advised governors to ask him to step down as chairman of their Governors Forum.
He also wondered why the country is suffering so much since the Jonathan left.
NAIJ.com recalls that just days ago Yari claimed that the ongoing outbreak of Type C Cerebrospinal meningitis in Nigeria has the handwork of God in it.
He said that God is using it to vent his anger on Nigerians who are terrible sinners.
The governor told journalists at the presidential villa Abuja shortly after meeting with President Muhammdu Buhari that Nigerians have turning their backs on God and hence, reason for the outbreak.
But Yari has denied it in a statement through his special adviser on media and public enlightenment Ibrahim Magaji Dosara.
He said all he asked Nigerians to do was to move closer to God and plead for his mercy to avert further infectious diseases and other health crises in the state and Nigeria since God has answers to all challenges.
