Sequel to the affirmation by the Director General of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), Dr Chikwe Ihekweazu, that Kano was the state with the highest number of COVID-19 tests as obtained last week, Coalition Against COVID-19 in Africa (CACinAf) hails Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje for the historic development.
This commendation was made in a letter signed and sent to the governor by John Kumasi Attah, the West African Coordinator of the group on Friday, 26th June, 2020.
The commendation, according to the statement issued late Friday by Malam Abba Anwar, the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Ganduje was fallout of the virtual meeting of the group’s executives. It came less than 24 hours after Ihekweazu had commended Kano for leading the COVID-19 test in the country last week.
Ihekweazu stated this during Presidential Task Force’s daily briefing on Thursday, 25th June, in Abuja.
“We are extremely delighted over the unrelenting efforts made by the Kano state government under Dr Abdullahi Omar Ganduje, OFR, against the global pandemic of COVID-19. Since when the governor made it clear few days back, how Kano was winning the war, we knew all stakeholders were watching with keen interest,” reads the letter.
