BREAKING: FG eases lockdown on Kano

The Federal Government has eased the lockdown imposed on Kano State as part of measures to curb the spread of coronavirus pandemic.

Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 and Secretary to the government of the federation, Boss Mustapha, made this known during a briefing in Abuja.

He said “Easing the total lockdown of Kano State and introduction of Phase One of the Eased Lockdown has been approved by the president.

“This is still a fight for life and our advancement to phase two does not mean that COVID-19 has ended. It is still potent and highly wasteful of human lives. I implore all Nigerians and corporate citizens to take responsibility and play the expected role.”

President Muhammadu Buhari had in an address to the nation on April 27 ordered a 14-day lockdown in the northwest state which was subsequently extended by the Presidential Task Force.
