Governor Ganduje lifts lockdown

Governor Umar Ganduje of Kano State has lifted the lockdown imposed on the state as part of measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

This was confirmed in a statement released by the state’s Director-General, Media and Communications, Salihu Yakasai, on Thursday.

Yakasai, however, noted that the Kano State government maintained the nationwide 10 pm to 4 am curfew imposed by the Federal Government.

“H.E @GovUmarGanduje removes the lockdown in Kano State which was imposed due to the coronavirus.

“However, a curfew is still in place from 10pm to 4am daily. This means people can go about their business from 4am to 10pm,” Yakasai wrote on Twitter.
