Me I still drank my gari, ice cu6with sugar yesterday b4 d food ready so don't tell me nonsense cuz me n gari na 5 n 6.

Bet how😫😫 We survived Ebola and many more... Drinking Gari or contaminated gari? This advice no sell at all. Does d expert know how many Nigerians rely on gari for survival in the absence of more nourishing foods? They aleaus say this everytime there is an outbreak. What if garri actually protects you from it but because they want you to be more susceptible to it so you can buy the drug to treat it,they tell you to avoid it ?.

Hmmmmm...very impossible oh. A valid lie, Garry that our four fathers drank and the was no lasser fever.... So you people wants our culture to be eliminated....... I don't get dis, are the rats sleeping inside the garri

Ìyẹn á lè di ẹ o Abi weyreh lawon eleyii ni - shey e fe gbepe sha? Stop ginni? I just finished drinking garri....Look for other measures to curtail it, not to stop drinking garri. Or take Adcorpfarms Hygienically processed and packaged garri! With extra protein added! Those that can afford to avoid drinking garri should avoid it, but for those of us that can't afford to avoid it, lets do well to ensure we keep our garri container sealed always. Dont leave any food stuff opened, and find a means to control rodents population in your house.

This advice no follow biko trafficbutter Una don mad since 1888 I go die if I no smoke garri with cold water after playing my weekend 5 aside football.... So wetin una dey talk no concern me.. News have it that few cases of Coronavirus has been reported in US and France...its probably on it's way to Africa by now...I guess you know the market square 😎

Joke of the year😂 I no kuku they drink garri na eat I dey eat Story for the gods, Lassa fever do not exceed lassa local govt .. Maybe people of Lassa LGA should stop drinking Garri not all Nigerians..if all Nigerians should stop drinking Garri then hunger will kill more than Lassa fever would have killed

JimohMark Microwave or heat the garri in frying pan if you don't know the source. That kills the Lassa When are visionary and greedy leaders did not provide us food Because hygiene has been thrown into the toilet and everyone needs quick money, heck a rat can take a s*** on the Garri and no one cares. Almost everyone 25 yrs and above had Garri at some point in time in their life.

Famine don come , don't drink garri ke !!!! It's only exposed gari that should be avoided please. Most importantly hygiene is necessary for everyone for health purpose. Afterall, health is wealth. But if you already had garri in your house, stored inside airtight containers long before the lassa fever outbreak, and you also have no rats in your house....they always show themselves through thier droppings and the damage they cause. Why stop drinking garri?

suundaz Iffa slap you😂😂 Ki ebi le ba pawa kú abi?....... 😏 This food has been saving lives since 1960. How can you be drinking garri in a flat plate?!! That must be Ghana garri! We no get rat for house now meanwhile we still have some at home..should we pour it away? there are other preventions aside this jare!!!

Do you wanna kill the students

Taah komot here.... which kain rough play be that one.. That I am doing as I typed this message. How will some students survive in this country😥😥😥 Seriously? Just come and put a rope on my neck because I won’t 👀 Una don start again 😁😁 Now, someone is high on weeeeeeeedddd How possible? Even the garri picture you posted here is inviting.

Una dey craze

What of the Garri I brought from my village since last year? Common then you need to provide food for Nigerian students Miìgbó....e so fún àwon agbèrò tó wà ní Ásó vilà Are guys serious? If i take am do Eba nko? My Dad told me his Dad is from Abeokuta, Totoro, Owu to be precise, If I do not drink Garri in a day, there will be combustion. Garri amd its derivatives are my daily food

Shit and I drank yesterday, so I'm now infected? Nope! It has do more with how you source your Garri than to avoid drinking it. Haba! Nutritionist or whatever,no be so. No way Ijebu garri has been saving lives since 1888. Ndi iberibe. Avoid drinking garri korrr! Mistchewwwwww.

Chai, hunger go finish man o. Garri is the only consolation we get frm all the nonsense our govt is doing with food availability, nw these rats are adding salt to injury The bond that join us together with garri is stronger than lassa fever 🙄🙄🙄 and the person that uploaded this picture.... We get one on one talk sha

How do we solved without drinking gari? It's d source of living in Nigeria I blame you, thank your father if not you go appreciate garri wella. It doesn't pass through heat process so it's kinda prohibited for consumption. Something dey worry una. Yo! Guys kindly update your audiomack playlist with this lovely song! 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️🤪🤪🤪🤪

You want make hungry kill us? Abeg all die Na die. You guys are mad

Who will feed the poor ppl who have only Garri to survive Wọ́n bẹ̀rẹ̀ Which kind of nonsense is this, me that I'm just planning to drink garri this afternoon with cold water. It's bad enough that I can't drink it with ground nut because of my nut allergy, now you are saying I shouldn't even drink it at all. Me I'm drinking this one.

My fav food on a hot day! why is naija liacdis nna? Simple pleasure again na wahala odiègwù 👹 Say something else. I took garri yesterday......eyin elenu poshi 😂😂😂 laugh in garri and moi moi Buhari why? 🤣 Where did I keep this catapult? Someone's head needs stone like Goliath's. oghogho_Jacinta please bring about two cups in addition to the one you will drink in office on Monday.

That’s the only food we survive on everyday na lasa go kill una family if anybody spoil the production of gari in this country Ogunlomapagbogboyi and awon oloribu ti wan she findings Ofo, what else do you pipu want us to eat again after ban of rice ?😡😡 Quack doctors everywhere. I have been eating garri since time immemorial. Lassa fever ko, Ebola ni .......

U people can't stop ⛔ from taking gari and groundnuts. Because this food 🍞 save 💾 many in this world 🌏. Watt about soaking it 😏 Haaaahhh! But I just finished drinking garri 😞 And eat what? Fa fa fa... Foul! This one go difficult o

Instead to advice us to be more careful in storing garri and prevent rats from infesting our stores, they want us to eradicate the most readily affordable food in Nigeria! Hmmmm!😞😞😉😉 I have some garri bought b4 the outbreak, i will finish it and won't buy another one Should I also stop taking eba? Which kind nonsense talk be that! Who tell una say rat dey my house? FYI, I store my garri in a container not in a bag on the floor.

Well excuse me We'd come back toLassaFever later... Punch me, who takes Garri in a flat plate (is that one even drinking Garri or eating Garri) Hmmm I know some people who'd rather die Is that the rat that pursued GMB from the Villa Rock Garri that has been saving lives for centuries. Mo ro pe werey shey yin sha...

Hiyaaaaaa I just drank Garri Now oh!!!!!! Biko stopiiit

Setting up Rats again to say an amount was spent on this n that, Lassa kor Abi Ori awon eleyi o pe ni? Sound this message louder to the makers of 'Checker Custard' powder beverages. The idea of packaging dried garri mixed with sugar, salt and milk and inserted into the custard containers is totally wrong. Evil marketing strategy...

Even with this decorated kind garri? Avoid garri? I hear you. Please not my life saving garri Our Ilaje, Yoruba & Ijaw brothers... we know it will not be easy but please comply because we love you all.🤦 Kuku kill us in Nigeria now Ano understand? Impossible Rubbish.. Me way be say na garri dey ease my headache

Blaaah! Kole werk 🤧 Na the comments dey make me laugh 😃😀😅 You people are not serious Hmmm you wan kill person? Where is it written in the consecution of food to be eaten....the best non advertising food but with many consumer Las Las something must kill a man. Avoid drinking garri ke na make all the Naija die be that o......omo ko possible

Only if those rats 🐀 have eaten the cassavas at the farms. You can’t tell people to just stop drinking Garri suddenly. Garri that our forefathers drank without any sickness. Make una park well oo. Tell us what’s the koko. Our life saving remedy..abeg make una no joke go that side biko To avoid this pls tell Nigerians on the need to have a clean stock houses, most of the shops where food stuffs are sold are quite dirty smelling with rats everywhere. Our markets is dirty our stores are dirty.

Hmmmm the only available for the poor After rice has be come big man food. He started that soaked gari exposes and makes you vulnerable to the virus. Salt will delassa the garri. Talk again They are some how correct because rats usually urinate inside garri but u will never know You come use Daviso ?! 🤣 Nike TheCakeChancery they are calling you

Na craze the worry una! Make una no go fight poverty na make the poor no drink garri again. una don craze AlexAgbo23 We die there niyen.. Garri wey I dey smoke as I dey type this tweet.. Yinmu

For this Nigeria Ah that means nah only the poor go die of Lassa fever ooh.
