Kano State Government has commenced the distribution of hoarded palliatives, in metropolitan government local areas of the state.
Sahelian Times has reliably gathered that the distribution of the hoarded palliative items is being done secretly to avoid attracting the anger of the people.
Some of the items, however, are said to have been spoilt due to bad storage, making them unfit for human consumption, according to our findings.
Salihu Tanko Yakasai, the Special Adviser to governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje on Media has confirmed that the palliatives were donated to the state by Coalition Against COVID-19 (CACOVID).
The media aide, however, attributed the delay in distribution of the palliatives to the donors’ protocols.
“I doubt if the palliatives are spoilt, and if some of them are, it is not the fault of the State government. It is solely the contractor’s”
“The palliatives were donated to Kano by CACOVID only two months ago, ” he added
It could be recalled that a group of Nigerian businesspersons and corporate organizations, which calls itself Coalition Against COVID-19 (CACOVID), contributed billions of Naira to help the country fight the rampaging coronavirus in the country.
Hoodlums had on October 2020 attacked and massively looted warehouses for the COVID-19 palliatives donated by CACOVID in Lagos, Osun, Kwara, Cross River, Kaduna, Plateau and some other states.
