The Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, has declared a one-day fast against the outbreak of the coronavirus disease.
He enjoined residents of the state to fast today (Monday) in order to seek divine intervention towards ending the pandemic
Ganduje said this while inaugurating a 37-member Fund Raising Committee on COVID-19, at the Government House on Sunday.
He said, “As Nigeria recorded over 90 cases of coronavirus, Kano is yet to record a single case, hence the need for the government to be up and doing to contain the outbreak of the deadly disease.
“I call on Kano people to observe fast tomorrow, (Monday) 30th March, and 5th Sha’aban and pray hard against the outbreak of coronavirus in our dear state.
“I also call on people to intensify prayers because prayer is the best fire for this disease,” he said
