Kano state Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has commissioned one of the Zonal Sample Collection Centers in Rano Emirate to further strengthen the fight against COVID-19 pandemic in the state.

He said zonal centers would be on board before going down to local government areas, to help suppress the pressure on the existing collection centers that are mostly in the metropolitan city of Kano.

Adding that, it was now very clear to all that, COVID-19 pandemic was real and that people must stand up and help the state in the fight against it.

The Emir of Rano, Alhaji Kabiru Muhammad Inuwa, who graced the occasion, assured the governor of the total support and cooperation of his Emirate in fighting the pandemic.

At Waziri Gidado Hospital, Bachirawa, the governor also commissioned a Collection Centre facility donated to the state government by eHealth Africa, as part of the organisation’s corporate social responsibility to fight COVID-19 pandemic.
