Gov Ganduje appeals to Buhari to relax COVID-19 lockdown in Kano



The Kano State government led by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje has appealed to the Federal Government led by President Muhammadu Buhari to ease the COVID-19 lockdown in the state.

Governor Ganduje made the appeal on Thursday during the inauguration of a seven-member group of specialised experts to support the State’s technical committee on COVID-19 at the Government House.

According to Ganduje, the people of Kano were running out of food, especially during the fasting period and easing the lockdown in the state will enable them restock their homes

Ganduje said; “We would engage the presidential taskforce 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 love the Federal government to relax the lockdown for a period of time to enable people to stock their homes, especially now that the majority of us are fasting. It will also ease the economic hardship in the state,” he added.
