Kano State Government had begun the second phase distribution of food items to 50,000 households, to cushion the effect of the COVID-19 lockdown.
Also speaking, the Chairman of the state’s COVID-19 Fund Rising Committee, Prof Yahuza Bello, said that the beneficiaries were selected carefully in each of the over 400 wards in the state.
Ganduje said the gesture was to enhance access to sample collection centre and ease difficulties being experienced by the people in travelling long distances for the coronavirus test.
He noted that his administration does not tag the residents of Sabon Gari area as non indigenes, because everybody is an instrument for the development of the state.
On his part, Rev. Adeola Adeyemo, the Chairman, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in the state, commended the governor for not attaching religious sentiment or tribalism in the execution of government policies and programmes. (NAN )
