Kano State Eases Lockdown, Lifts Ban On Religious Gatherings

The lockdown measure imposed on Kano State has been eased following the directives set down by the Federal Government on how states can ease the lockdown measures and allow for an ease in the restriction of movement in the country.

According to the Kano State Commissioner for Information, Malam Muhammad Garba, the state government, while easing the lockdown measures, also released guidelines on how residents can navigate the "new normal" in this pandemic period, in a bid to curb the spread of the virus.

Garba said that religious gatherings and market activities in the state on Friday, Wednesday, and Sunday are allowed between 6 am and 6 pm.

The commissioner also disclosed that the governor of the state, Abdullahi Ganduje, has met with market leaders to map out ways residents can comply with the new set of guidelines while trying to access these market places in the state.

Although movements within the state have been eased, interstate travel, except for the transportation of farm produce and other essential services, are still banned.

Schools in the state, as with other states, will remain closed.
