Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje has appealed to the government of President Muhammadu Buhari to take urgent steps to reactivate the COVID-19 testing center at the Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital in Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC)
This appeal was mad during a press briefing held at the Government House today by the Kano state Governor, Ganduje.
He described the situation as serious, stated that more isolation centres were also needed in the state and insisted the lockdown was firmly in force.
“Our testing centre at Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital has been down for some time and we know that the Presidential Centre has been doing all its best trying hard in order to bring it back to operation.
Further more, he added that “the present pandemic is causing a lot of problems for the people of Kano State. We ask the Federal Government to quicken and put this testing centre in order,” he said.
Ganduje finally said the state will soon commence the second phase of distribution of palliatives targeting 50,000 households, estimated to cost over N600million.
