El-Rufa’i extends Kaduna lockdown

After the expiration of the second month lockdown in Kaduna State, Governor Nasir Ahmad El-Rufa’i on Tuesday evening extended the lockdown by two weeks.

The Governor who spoke through his deputy, Dr. Hadiza Sabuwa Balarabe in a live broadcast Tuesday evening said, after 60 days, the State Government has reviewed the Quarantine Orders and approved the recommendation to extend the partial lockdown regulations for two weeks, with adjustments to permit the reopening of certain sectors.

Balarabe also said schools, places of worship and markets will remain closed under the adjusted orders while relevant government officials and agencies will be engaging with religious leaders, transport unions, traditional institutions, market unions, school proprietors and other stakeholders as may be identified from time to time, to discuss the conditions and circumstances for a safe reopening of the sectors.
