Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has announced a total easing of the lockdown imposed on the state to check spread of the novel coronavirus.

He said, however, that restriction of movement from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. would continue.
The governor also directed civil servants on grade level 12 and above to resume work from July 6.
“Civil servants from grade level 12 and above can return to work from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. but must continue to practice social distancing,” he said.
According to the governor, the law banning street begging and hawking is still in place.
He told Kano State residents to wear masks when going out and to continue to adhere to social distancing in public places.
