FFK took to his twitter handle to ask one vital question concerning the unfolding events in Kano. Fani-Kayode through his handle said that 70% of Kano physicians have absconded. He then put the big question forward “What is going on?
Just few hours ago the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 said that experts and professionals have been sent to Kano to assist in managing the situation and finding out the immediate cause of the deaths in the state. The team also announced that the testing lab in Kano has resumed work and testing is currently taking place at the center.
However, Franspat gathered that the presidential team on COVID-19 pandemic has arrived Kano State. On arrival, leader of the presidential committee Dr Nasiru Sani Gwarzo led the technical team on a courtesy visit to Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje on Tuesday at Government House.
Dr Gwarzo, who is also the permanent secretary, Federal Ministry of Industries, Commerce and Investment, told Governor Ganduje that the team had received matching order to evaluate the worrying situation in Kano and finding a lasting solution.
Kano, which currently stands as the third hardest-hit state in Nigeria, has so far reported 77 cases out of the 1,273 in Nigeria..

Due to the lack of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) when Gandollar was busy thieving, he never thought days like these, shall come. pic.twitter.com/ARd1xX9beZ

They don’t want to die. They haven’t been given the protection to do their jobs safely. They too have families, who will look after them if they perish?
It’s understandable. The government must provide them with the tools needed to do their jobs.

Nothing, really. They just don't want to contract 'Diabetes, heart attack and chronic malaria.'

When you tie the hands of a drummer boy, and expect to hear the sound of the drum, it shows you are daft and insane. The FG cannot after looting the money meant for health sector expect the physicians to be doing magic with their saliva. @realFFK #LongLiveMaziNnamdiKanu

Sir, he who fights and run away lives to fight another day…
This government pays only lip service to these professionals… Most of the so called "hazard allowance" are only but audio…

I think there's something the government is hiding from the public. I've never heard that malaria has killed hundreds of people in one region under one week before.
