Lockdown Breach: Ganduje In Closed Door Meeting With Clerics

Ganduje Extends Lockdown Over Coronavirus In Kano

The Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, is in a closed-door meeting with the state Ullamas, Preachers, and Jumat Friday Mosque Imams to discuss following the decision of the Presidential Taskforce on Coronavirus to extend the Kano lockdown by another two weeks.

Information gathered has it that the meeting was set up to deliberate on issues bothering on the closure of Jumaat Mosques, banning of Religious activities and other religious rites in the holy month of Ramadan.

There are reports that some Jumaat Mosques Imams have started defying closure of Mosques by observing their Friday Prayers.

Ganduje had noted that anyone who disobeys the state ban on Friday Prayers would face the law, however, some clerics are taking it lightly.

There are other reports that traders at the Kwari major textile market, Sabon Gari and other big markets in Kano are reported to be grumbling about the lockdown.

There are speculations that the government will relax some of its total lockdown orders which especially as it affects the Friday Prayers.

The Governor had last week noted that his administration is ready to relax the lockdown if the kano residents obey social distancing rules, wearing face masks, using hand sanitizers and constant washing of hands.
