The Kano State Governor, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has allayed the fears of residents over possible lockdown following the resurgence of Coronavirus across the globe
The governor assured Kano residents that another lockdown was not in the works while launching the 2000 male and female Coronavirus Marshals Program in the state.
The marshals are expected to see to the enforcement of the three basic protocols to mitigate the pandemic, including washing of hands, facemasks wearing and social distancing.
He said “We are doing everything humanly possible to ensure that we reduce the spread of the pandemic, but locking down to fully enforce the protocols is out of the question”.
“Our government has engaged stakeholders in the fight against Coronavirus and we are not relenting until we get it right and God willing we are getting right.
He added that the state is using the Marshals and Mobile Courts to strictly make peoples adhere to the protocols not to harass anybody.
The Secretary to the Government, Usman Alhaji, in his address noted that the fight is not for the government alone but everybody’s responsibility to ensure the state gets it right.
The State Commissioner for Health Dr Aminu Ibrahim Tsanyawa, said the 2000 Marshals were carefully selected and have been given the mandate to strictly enforce the protocols by working in tandem with the security personnel.
He advised Kano peoples to comply with the protocols by supporting the Marshals to avoid being arrested.
