Kaduna State governor, Nasiru Ahmad El-Rufai has opened up his state after 75 days of partial lockdown.

The governor revealed this today while paying tribute to the good people of Kaduna State for their huge sacrifices since the pandemic began.

According to him, despite the reopening of the state, schools and markets will remain closed because at this stage of coronavirus containment, it is still very unsafe for markets and schools to reopen.

He added that Kaduna residents must keep practicing social distancing at their offices and places of worship until these trying times is a thing of the past.

His words, “The government will keep engaging with the relevant stakeholders on the matter, to determine the appropriate timing and conditions precedent.

“Businesses can reopen, subject to the provision of thermometers for temperature checks, sanitizers or hand washing equipment and physical distancing measures within all facilities. Working hours will be 9am to 3pm daily.”

“Within the state, security checkpoints will be allowed only to enforce compliance with the night time curfew. During the day, any violations of the adjusted Quarantine Order like failure to wear facemasks etc. will be enforced by Operation Yaki, KASTLEA, the Vigilance Service and our Mobile Courts.”

“Supermarkets and providers of personal services such as hair dressing and barbing salons can reopen; hotels can fully open, but with their restaurants and bars offering only room service.”

“While we require individual citizens to practice personal responsibility, the places where they work, worship or shop and the vehicles in which they travel must also protect their health and safety.”
