Kaduna state governor, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, has said that the significant easing of lockdown in the state has paved way for citizens of the state to resume their businesses and pursue their means of livelihood.
On Tuesday, June 16, 2020, the governor announced in a tweet that “KDSG has directed the immediate removal of roadblocks at the various boundaries of the state.”
The governor added that “Barricades placed at the entry points are to be removed forthwith, while KDSG officials will no longer be posted for boundary patrols.”
After three days, on Thursday, Governor El-Rufai tweeted again: “The significant easing of the lockdown in the state has allowed citizens to resume the pursuit of livelihoods, in safe conditions and with personal responsibility.
“Therefore, KDSG has decided that no further donations are required from public servants, effective from June 2020.”
The lockdown across the states actually affected people’s economic survival. There was hunger and starvation in many homes. Salaries were not paid to many workers, especially those in the private sector.
Private school owners and their staff, transporters and their staff, especially, interstate transporters, till date are still in pains. Many of them have no food to eat.
So, the easing of the lockdown, especially interstate lockdown, will go a long way to helping the people pursue their economic survival.
