    They should cut the crap! In this age of herd immunity in which everyone uses antibiotics and where immunisation is relatively freely available they should stop lying to us about massive outbreak of Meningitis. It is sheer propaganda.

    I heard they needed $1.1 billion to fight it. I’m certain they are trying to defraud Nigeria. Yes! It is a case of pure scam. Our public health physicians are at it again, trying to smile to the bank. The outbreak might even be their handwork.

    The police, EFCC and DSS should take note.
