The Governor Abdullahi Ganduje-led government has revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari gave permission to ease the lockdown in the state due to the outbreak of Coronavirus.
The claim was revealed in a post by the state ministry of health on its Twitter account on Saturday.
Recall that Nigerians attacked that Kano State Governor for relaxing the lockdown order in the state despite a record of 92 new cases.
Ganduje had noted that Mondays and Thursdays would be lockdown free days, especially between 10 am and 4 pm to enable residents to shop for food.
However, following an attack from Nigerians, the state Ministry of Health tweeted, “@KanostateNg relaxes #lockdown on Mondays & Thursdays from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm with the consent of the President @MBuhari.”
“The General public is to adhere strictly to #COVID19Kano protocols as given by the health professionals.”
