‘’ I am hereby making an announcement that each Monday in the lockdown period between 10 am to 4 pm people are allowed to come out and make some purchases. So also on Thursdays between 10 am to 4 pm people are allowed to be out within these stipulated time,” says Governor Ganduje.

He urged that “…people must observe all protocols as given by our health professionals. We should all know that there is no short cut in the fight against COVID-19 all over the world. So we must always abide by all the protocols.”

According to the statement, Ganduje explained that within the time for the relaxation of the lockdown order, all markets must remain closed, with the exception of Yankaba market, where perishable items are sold and Yan Lemo market, where fruits are sold.

He reveals that “As we are targeting more Testing Centres in the state, the richest man in Africa, Alhaji Aliko Dangote is donating Mobile Testing Centre with the capacity of testing 400 people daily. The facility is coming to Kano in the next two days, by Monday.”

Rising cases of positive COVID-19 patients, the governor said, “…is a thing of great concern. Though we are aware that with the reopening of the Aminu Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital Testing Centre with the capacity of 88 samples per day, and the coming up of another Testing Centre at Bayero University, Kano, with the capacity of 20 samples per day, would mean another rise in the identified positive cases.”
