Flash: Lockdown relaxation order not effective in Katsina State
The relaxation of the lockdown order by the Federal Government through President Muhammadu Buhari has no effect on the current total lockdown of some local government areas in Katsina State, Katsina Post learned.
Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari in a televised address to the nation announced the relaxation of lockdown order enforced by the Federal Government on Lagos, Abuja and Ogun last week.
However, in a phone interview with the Senior Special Assistant to the Katsina State Governor on New Media, Abdulhadi Ahmad Bawa said the order is not effective in Katsina State as the lockdown in Katsina State was not enforced by the Federal Government in the first place.
He also said that Katsina State has its own peculiarities and also the leadership in the state has already enforced the most needed orders accordingly.
He therefore enjoined the good people of the state especially those in the affected Local Government Areas to continue to abide by the lockdown order stressing that it is the most effective and cheapest way of halting the spread of the disease.
At least ten local government areas in Katsina State are currently under total lockdown.
The local government areas are Daura, Dutsin-ma, Katsina, Batagarawa, Safana, Mani, Jibia, Kankia, Musawa and Matazu.
