The Kano State governor, Alh Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has relaxed the presidential lockdown for two days in Kano
The governor made the announcement on Saturday during a press briefing at the government house in Kano.
President Muhammadu Buhari had on Tuesday ordered a total lockdown in Kano for 14 days as part of measures to contain the spread of the COVDI 19 pandemic which was evidently spreading rapidly in the state.
Ganduje during the briefing said the lockdown will be unlocked for six hours between 10am and 4pm on Monday, May 4 and Thursday, May 7, 2020.
He however explained that the decision to relax the lockdown was taken in consultation with the federal government, which he said was to ease the hardship citizens and residents have been compelled to face.
The governor maintained the compulsory use of face mask for everyone going out on those two days.
While warning traders against inflating prices of commodities the governor said the state anti-corruption agency is on track to confiscate goods and persons found taken undue advantage of the window of opportunity.
