While addressing the Northern Governors/ Traditional rulers in a meeting convened by the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar III to address the prevalence of the disease,  the Kogi State Deputy Governor, Elder Simon Achuba, has called on the 19 Northern state Governors to embark on an aggressive sensitization in addressing the menace of Cerebrum Spinal Meningitis.According to the Deputy Governor, the North is most vulnerable to the disease, therefore has called on leaders in the North to embark on a vigorous sensitization and awareness in addressing the issue before it gets out of hands.
He has said that “One of the causes is a practical example of a place I went and saw a family of about 30 persons in a room with a very tiny window, and that alone can cause a serious heat among the occupants which may metamorphose to CSM.
He has advised that a house style where people live or reside should have good ventilation, which is one of the causes of the disease.
