Kano State Governor, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, has pleaded with President Muhammadu Buhari to ease the total lockdown imposed.

He made this plea during the inauguration of a seven-member specialised experts to support the State’s technical committee at the Government House.

On Monday, president Buhari had in a live broadcast announced the total lockdown of the State with immediate effect to stem the spread of coronavirus.

This decision was necessitated by the mass death recorded in the State.

However, Ganduje yersternight asked that the lockdown be eased urgently to mitigate the economic hardship.

According to him, Kano state people were running out of food, especially during the fasting period.

He added that easing the lockdown will enable them restock their homes.

“We would engage the presidential taskforce on COVID-19 to seek permission to relax the total lockdown imposed on Kano. We are making this appeal on behalf of our people who are presently running out of food items.

“We love the Federal government to relax the lockdown for a period of time to enable people stock their homes, especially now that majority of us are fasting. It will also ease the economic hardship in the state,” This Day quoted him as saying.

Ganduje further noted that the government was expanding facilities to accommodate an increasing number of suspects.

Meanwhile, Kano State on Thursday recorded 80 new cases of coronavirus.
