The Kaduna State Government has adjusted the days of the week residents are allowed to move freely in the state.

The Managing Director, Kaduna Markets Development and Management Company, Hafiz Bayero, in a statement on Sunday said the days for free movement has been adjusted to Wednesday and Thursday.

Before the new change, residents were allowed to move out of their homes to purchase foodstuffs on Saturdays and Wednesdays.

He added that henceforth, no market would open on Saturday.

News Agency of Nigeria reports that the adjustment may not be unconnected with the forthcoming Eid-el-Fitr Festival expected to come up on Saturday, May 23.

“Following the government’s decision, the Kaduna Markets Development and Management Company has announced that it will make all the necessary arrangements for the orderly and safe conduct of trading activities at all the designated temporary neighborhood markets.

“Traders and their customers visiting the temporary markets on Wednesday and Thursday are expected to wear face masks, observe physical distancing and comply with other public health protocols on both days,” he said.

Bayero further warned traders against setting up illegal shops on the streets near the closed main markets.

He added that the temporary markets would operate from 10:00am to 4:00pm for the two days.
