Senator Ben-Murray Bruce has lashed back at Zamfara State Governor, Abdulaziz Yari, over a statement credited to him, Adulaziz Yari said that the current outbreak of Meningitis in the country was due to the sin of fornication committed by Nigerians.
Reacting, Ben Bruce noted that the real sin causing meningitis is the sin of mismanaging the money budgeted to cure and prevent a disease that regularly affects Nigerians.
Recall that Governor Abdulaziz Yari, had while addressing journalists after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Villa, claimed that God was unleashing his wrath on Nigerians, for turning their back on him.
But the Senator on his Twitter handle @BenMurraybruce, said, “We can’t have such brilliant medical minds like Bennet Omalu and still operate from the mindset that sins cause diseases like meningitis!
“The real sin causing meningitis is the sin of mismanaging the money budgeted to cure and prevent a disease that regularly affects Nigerians.
“Meningitis is caused by bacteria not sin. If sin caused meningitis, most of us politicians will get it, but it’s the poor who suffer it most.
