Meanwhile Governor Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara state insists the meningitis outbreak ravaging parts of the country is God’s punishment for peoples’ sins.
NAIJ.com recalls that the Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, had faulted the statement credited to Yari that the meningitis outbreak was God’s punishment for peoples’ sins.
