Umar Ganduje, governor of Kano State, has lifted the lockdown imposed on the state, as part of measures to curb the spread of COVID-19.
The state’s Director-General, Media and Communications, Salihu Yakasai, disclosed this on Thursday.
He said the government, however, maintained that the nationwide 10.00pm to 4.00am curfew imposed by the federal government remained in place in the state.
“H.E @GovUmarGanduje removes the lockdown in Kano State which was imposed due to the coronavirus. However, a curfew is still in place from 10pm to 4am daily. This means people can go about their business from 4am to 10pm,” Yakasai wrote on Twitter.
