Drowned Animals Caused Cholera Outbreak In Kebbi State.

Governor Abubakar Atiku Bagudu yesterday disclosed that presently cholera outbreak in Kebbi State was caused by the drowning of 16,000 animals in the Niger Republic water. 


According to him, the water, in which the animals drowned, passed through the River Niger to some local government areas in Kebbi State.

Bagudu, while fielding questions from journalists at the Government House, said that the outbreak was as a result of flooding of the River Niger, which was contaminated by the dead animals. He said: “As a result of flooding, the state is experiencing this sad episode of cholera outbreak.

It is as a result of the contamination of water from Niger Republic through the River Niger. It was when I visited the country on behalf of President Muhammadu Buhari on a condolence visit to the Niger President, Muhammadu Yusuf, over the boat mishap, which claimed 25 lives that I was told by one of their ministers that no less than 16,000 animals died in the flood that ravaged the country.

Sad!
But what really caused the outbreak? Death of.animals in the river, flooding or his failure to provide his state with portable drinking water? Because if the state had made portable drinking water the people would have had.no business consuming contaminated water.

I love you deeply for this comment. How convenient it is for the no. 1 citizen of a state to spit out this rubbish... God forbid!
Our leaders are shameless and heartless! The president quickly sent you off to go commensurate with the people of Niger State where 16 lives were lost in the boat mishap.. Millions of people die each day in this miserable country, yet no one cares.. Shame!!!!
