COVID-19: Kano Government Announces Lockdown

The Periscope reporter

Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano Tuesday, declared a seven-day statewide lockdown starting from Thursday, as a way of breaking the COVID-19 infection circle, following the announcement of four confirmed cases in the state.

In a press release issued by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor Abba Anwar, the governor said, “From Thursday 16th April by 10pm Kano is locked down for the benefit of all in the state. All markets are closed and all public gatherings are banned.

“The lockdown is for 7 days. We then wait and see what will come up. We are hoping that Allah will see us through.”

Can Kano people comply with the lockdown order when some preachers with sizable audience are discouraging the faithful against abandoning worshipping places simply because of Coronavirus?

Can the lockdown order be fully enforced in a most populous almajiri setting that will require adequate provision of welfare packages for the seven days lockdown?
