– Ben Murray Bruce responds to Zamfara State Governor
Senator Ben-Murray Bruce in a tweet reacted to the statement credited to the Governor of Zamfara State, Abdulaziz Yari, where he said that the current outbreak of Meningitis in the country was due to the sin of fornication committed by Nigerians.
The senator while reacting said that the real sin causing meningitis is the sin of mismanaging the money budgeted to cure and prevent a disease that regularly affects Nigerians.
The Governor of Zamfara, Abdulaziz Yari, had addressed journalists after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Villa and claimed that God was unleashing his wrath on Nigerians, for turning their back on Him.
This spuned the response by Ben Murray Bruce where he said:
“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.”
