COVID-19: Kano govt extends ban on social gathering to clubs, concerts, street parties

The Kano State government has said that the ban it imposed on the activities of viewing and event centres now extends to clubs, concerts, street parties and other large social gatherings as part of the effort to combat the spread of COVID-19.

This was just as the state government said it would not hesitate to bring the full weight of the law to bear on any person or organisation caught breaching public health regulations and protocols with regards to the control of the disease.

According to a statement signed by the state commissioner for Information, Malam Muhammad Garba, a copy made available on Thursday, the government said all the restrictions have to be enforced “because the safety of our people and their welfare are priorities that cannot be toyed with.”

He, however, stated that the state government would continue to engage all the stakeholders to sensitise the populace on the need to maintain social distancing and collective effort to combat this pandemic.

The commissioner pointed out that security agents have been mandated to ensure full compliance without exception.
