Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, has begged the Federal Government to relax the 14-day total lockdown imposed on the state due to the hike in coronavirus cases reported in the state.
The state of Kano is on a total lockdown following President Buhari’s order issued on Monday as part of measures to curb the spread of coronavirus disease.
Buhari had also announced the deployment of a team of health experts to address the rising cases of “unusual deaths” in the state.
Ganduje during the inauguration of a panel to support the Kano State Task Force Technical Committee, highlighted that it is best to relax the lockdown to reduce the hardship in the state.
“We would engage the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 to seek permission to relax the total lockdown imposed on Kano.
“We are making this appeal on behalf of our people who are presently running out of food items. We would love the federal government to relax the lockdown for a period of time to enable people stock their homes, especially now that majority of us are fasting. It will also ease the economic hardship in the state,” Ganduje said, according to TheCable.
