Kaduna Pilgrims Board meets stakeholders to improve Hajj operations
The Kaduna State Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board on Thursday met with key stakeholders to discuss on how to improve future Hajj operations.
During the meeting in Kaduna, the Overseer of the Board, Hussaini Tsoho, explained that, the aim was to rub minds with the stakeholders drawn from different fields and professions to discuss weaknesses and ways to improve future Hajj activities.
He said since the inception of Gov. Nasiru El-Rufai’s administration, the board has recorded achievements in running its affairs especially when compared to the past.
According to Tsoho, the board has never experienced government interference or dominance especially in the areas of nominating officials during hajj.
“Before now, previous governments usually nominate politicians as officials instead of professionals who are paid to guide Pilgrims,’’ he noted.
He stressed that employing professionals as officials have added tremendous value to the board especially in handling pilgrims are properly guiding them during pilgrimage.
The Overseer said that from 2015 to date, officials live and sleep amongst pilgrims and also eat the same kind of food served to them.
Also, the Director-General, Kaduna State Interfaith Council, Namadi Musa, said as a result of the commitments and hard work exhibited by the officials, the board had received award of excellence for operational services.
Musa disclosed that, Gov. El-Rufa’i has supported the board with all the necessary funds required particularly in sponsoring officials that usually guide pilgrims.
Kaduna Govt consults stakeholders on steps to reopen economy
Balarabe said publication of the guidelines would soon be out, adding that it would be followed by ‘’a formal announcement on the re-opening of permitted sectors’’.
She recalled that the state government had last week extended the Quarantine Orders by additional two weeks during which stakeholders would be consulted on the conditions for a safe re-opening of the state.
“Further to that commitment, the state government has initiated consultations with traditional rulers, business community, market and transport unions, proprietors of private schools and religious leaders.
“This was aimed to discuss the protocols for re-opening more segments of the society and the economy.
“Clear protocols and guidelines for the reopening of approved sectors will be published before the current Quarantine Order expires on Tuesday, June 9, 2020,” the deputy governor said.
According to her, this will spell out what is required and the measures to be taken in the economic and social sectors that will be reopened.
“The markets, places of worship, schools and other facilities whose operations were prohibited under the Quarantine Orders, will remain shut until the approved protocols are announced next week.
“Citizens should note that congregational worship is not yet permitted.
“Religious leaders are aware of this fact, and we expect everyone to live up to their obligations and avoid needless, and illegal activity,’’ she added.
Balarabe, who is also the Chairman of the State Task Force on COVID-19, said that government had consulted widely with stakeholders who have pledged to assist the state government’s efforts in reopening of the state.
According to her, the recommendations and suggestions that have emerged from the consultations will help to strengthen the re-opening strategy.
“The draft guidelines and discussion documents shared with the stakeholders will be improved with inputs received,’’ she said.
Balarabe said it was only prudent to allow the sacrifices that had been made to be followed, to achieve the desired results.
She commended the citizens for their perseverance through hardship occasioned by the enforcement of the lockdown period.
“That is why the lockdown has from inception been partial to allow for essential services and the operation of some economic sectors.
“The report of this committee has since been discussed by the state task force on COVID-19 and published,’’ she added.
Kaduna draws modalities on safe reopening of state
Kaduna State Government says its working out modalities on safe reopening of the state.
The state Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftancy Affairs, Jafaru Sani, said this shortly after a closed door meeting with traditional rulers chaired by Gov. Nasir El-Rafa’i in Kaduna.
He said the meeting was aimed at receiving first hand information on the state government’s response so far on the fight against COVID-19.
According to the commissioner, other issues discussed at the meeting were on strategies on re-opening the state.
“In the next few days after the state government goes through all the recommendations given, it will come out with means of easing life for residents,” he said.

Lockdown: NSCDC in Kaduna arrest 21 suspects in hotels
The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) Kaduna Command, said it arrested 21 suspects in hotels at about 1:00 am of Thursday in Kaduna metropolis for violating the lockdown order over COVID-19 pandemic.
The Command’s Public Relations Officer, ASC Orndiir Terzungwe made the disclosure at a press briefing on Thursday in Kaduna.
Terzungwe said the command was worried by complaints of inadequate compliance with lockdown down order by Kaduna State government which was still in force.
He explained that the command carried out raid of some hotels within the metropolis, resulting to the arrest of 21 suspects for violation of the order.
According to him, the choice of the location for the raid was informed by complaints of crimes in the areas in spite of measures by security agencies.
“Credible intelligence survey reveals that Millennium city and Kigo Road are among hubs of illegalities which the command has resolved to take drastic actions in reversing the ugly trend.
“The lockdown order which is still in place requires all bars, clubs, schools and worship centres to remain shut until further directives,” he said.
Terzungwe said on completion of investigations, all the suspects will be charged to court for violation of the lockdown.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that to control the COVID- 19 pandemic, Kaduna State Government had locked down the state, but created a three days window on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays for residents to restock essentials.

Kaduna LG distributes 15 donkeys seized by state govt to beneficiaries
Alhaji Muhammad Aliyu, Chairman, Soba Local Government area, Kaduna State, on Wednesday distributed 15 donkeys to some residents of the council area to enhance their economic and agricultural activities.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Gov. Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna on May 21, directed that dozens of the donkeys, which were seized from illegal traders at the Kagarko forest, to six local governments in the state be distributed to six local governments.
The six beneficiary local governments are Igaabi, Zaria, Soba, Kubau, Giwa and Kudan local governments.
Aliyu said since the distribution of the donkeys by the state government, the local government received many requests from interested members and groups for the donkeys, hence the distribution to some residents.
The chairman said the gesture was from the state governor to assist the rural communities with the easiest means of transportation at the grassroots, stressing that donkeys were now very costly.
He implored the beneficiaries to make effective use of the animals for better agricultural and economic activities.
”Use of donkeys as a transportation alternative particularly during this rainy season is very important.
“Where vehicles cannot reach, donkeys can easily reach and they will serve the purpose they are meant for,’’ the council chairman said.
The beneficiaries expressed their happiness over the gesture, and assured of the local government authorities that they would use the donkeys accordingly.
The law prohibits unlawful slaughter, killing and sale of donkeys within the state.
It also prohibits movement of donkeys for the purpose of slaughtering for human consumption within the state among others.
Markets, places of worship remain shut – Kaduna govt.
The Kaduna State government says it has not reopened markets or places of worship.
Mr Muyiwa Adekeye, the Special Adviser to the Govenor on Media and Communication, stated this known in a statement issued on Tuesday in Kaduna.
Adekeye said that government has started engaging some business and religious leaders on how to ensure safe re-opening of markets and places of worship, saying that this had not been concluded.
“Until these consultations result in a formal announcement authorising businesses, markets and places of worship to reopen, it will be a violation of subsisting quarantine orders to reopen any unauthorised facility or to conduct congregational worship of any sort,” he said.
Adekeye said that the decision to close places of worship in the state was taken and enforced in March by government, as part of the proclamation of the quarantine orders in the state.
“Kaduna State is not one of the two states and the Federal Capital Territory where the Federal Government imposed lockdown.
“The steps taken to ease such federally-imposed lockdowns in the concerned places should not be construed as the Federal Government relaxing in all states, conditions that it did not impose in the first place.
“Kaduna State has its own well-articulated roadmap for reopening and this was published last week as a public document for the views and inputs of the citizens of the state.
“That is why when it extended the quarantine orders by two weeks on May 26, it also announced steps to ease some of the restrictions.
“These included increasing lockdown-free days to three and allowing approved businesses and facilities to open on those three days,” he said.
According to him, the quarantine extension, announced by the Deputy Governor, Dr Hadiza Balarabe on May 26, had made clear that schools, places of worship and markets would remain closed under the adjusted orders.
He said that relevant government officials and agencies would be engaging stakeholders, as might be identified from time to time, to discuss the conditions and circumstances for a safe reopening of these sectors.
“Government also maintains the prohibition of interstate and intercity travels.
“Government officials and mobile courts will continue to enforce this ban to prevent people from spreading the virus through non-essential movements.
“In addition, the nighttime curfew that has been enforced across the state still remains, from 6 pm to 6 am,” the governor’s spokesperson said.
He further reminded the residents that the partial easing of restrictions was being undertaken to ensure that COVID-19 prevention efforts could continue side-by-side with the pursuit of livelihoods.
“It has been a most difficult period for the citizens, with many inconveniences amid the danger of COVID-19, but they are aware that the state has not experienced hundreds of unexplained deaths.
“COVID-19 infections continue to rise due partly to intensive testing, tracing and treatment by our health personnel and largely to the failure of some persons to comply fully with the imposed quarantine restrictions.
“All the sacrifices made by residents of the state demand that the easing of the lockdown be done safely and responsibly.
“Public safety and the protection of human lives remain the sole motivation for the government’s COVID-19 response,” he said.
Adekeye, therefore, appealed to the residents to be patient and collaborate with government to implement a careful, safe and responsible re-opening of the state.

The Kaduna State Ministry of Health has commenced active case search within communities in the nine local government areas where COVID-19 infections have been confirmed.
The state Commissioner for Health, Dr Amina Mohammed-Baloni, said in a statement on Monday that health officials were going into communities to search for and test persons who might be showing any COVID-19 symptom.
“As part of the active case search, 29,771 households have so far been visited. Health officials have tested 297 persons with symptoms such as fever and sore throat,’’ she said.
The commissioner explained that the search for probable cases within communities was combined with targeted testing of contacts of confirmed cases and testing of persons with symptoms that met the case definition.
She warned that the number of COVID-19 cases in the state was likely to increase, as more tests were conducted in more areas.
“Expanded testing will enable early identification of new cases and will help prevent further spread of the virus by getting infected persons to be isolated and treated earlier.
“It will also provide more accurate data to inform government’s decisions, going forward,’’ she added.
The commissioner further said that the active case search had given the ministry the opportunity to search for other medical conditions and provide services to the communities.
She said that as at May 31, the state had recorded a total of 258 cases, out of which 93 were active cases, with 157 discharged 157 and eight fatalities.
Navy distributes palliatives to 500 households in Kaduna
The Nigerian Navy School of Armmament Technology, on Monday distributed palliatives to 500 households in Unguwar Ayuba, a community in Kachia Local Government Kaduna State.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the donation was part of activities marking the 64th anniversary of the Nigerian Navy.
Items distributed included rice, vegetable oil, noodles and beans.
The Commandant of the School, Real Admiral Tanko Pani, said the Navy’s 64th anniversary is being marked at a time the nation is struggling to contain the Coronavirus pandemic.
He noted that the pandemic has impacted negatively on the livelihoods of most Nigerians particularly those whose source of income is largely subsistence.

community depends on how easily the people are able to access markets for their agricultural produce.
“As part of measures to curb the spread of the virus, the government has issued the stay-at-home order, the use
of nose masks and a ban on religious and social gatherings amongst many others.
“The presence of the virus has caused some form of adjustments to lifestyles which has resulted
to hardships especially for those of you who rely on daily income.
“It is against this backdrop that the Nigerian Navy deemed it fit to ameliorate the plight of the people in the aforementioned category by distributing palliatives to this residents.
He appreciated the community for its immense support to the school over the years.
“On behalf of the Chief of the Naval Staff (CNS), I wish to register my deepest appreciation to residents of Kachia and environs for their support to the Nigerian Navy.
“I appeal to you to continue to collaborate with us in order to collectively tackle the various security challenges in your communities.
“It is our expectation that the distribution of these palliative items will further cement the existing cordial Civil Military Relationship.
“Therefore, I acknowledge the support of the leaders of Ungwan Ayuba community for their incalculable support to the Nigerian Navy over the years,” he added.
Pani urged the residents to adhere strictly to the guidelines issued by the Federal Government on the containment
The Commandant also acknowledged the support of Kaduna state government to the School and the Nigerian Navy in general.
Responding, the ward head of Unguwar Ayuba, Mr Ayuba Bala, appreciated the gesture of the Navy and pledged that the community would continue to support the efforts of security agencies toward sustainable peace and stability in the area.
