As part of the measures put in place against resurgence of COVID-19 pandemic in Kano State, the state government said it will soon establish mobile courts to try defaulters of the disease’s protocols, especially the use of face mask.

The state Governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, state this on Saturday during Stakeholders Sensitisation Meeting, part of the series of meetings, with proprietors of private hospitals in the state, held at Government House, Kano.

Ganduje said, “Very soon, we are coming up with Mobile Courts to help in enforcing the use of face mask in the state.

“There could be public outcry, but public outcry cannot stop serious government from serving her people.

“We will not be diverted from what is good for our people.

“This collaboration will continue between us,” he added.

He called on the people of the state to continue complying with other protocols of hand washing, social distancing and the use of sanitizer.

In another development, the state government has also provided private hospitals  in the state 2,000 Personal Protective Equipments (PPEs) 100,000 face masks.

This, according to Governor Ganduje, is to help them take good care of their frontline health workers who come in contact with patients daily.
