Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has finally accepted blame for the recent wave of deaths that rocked the centre of commerce.

  He spoke in a statement released by his spokesperson, Abba Anwar.

According to him, the death was caused following failure to test suspected coronavirus cases and the spread is uncontrollable.

  “There is no doubt that Kano is in trouble. And there is no doubt that we started on a shaky foundation. When samples were taken to Abuja for 7 hours and came back again in 7 hours that was the shaky foundation I am talking about.

We then lodged our complaint to President Muhammadu Buhari, who ordered for the establishment of a Testing Centre at Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital, which after take-off was shut down for some days if not weeks.   That was what escalated the transmission of the disease up to community transmission,” the statement reads.

  Speaking further, Ganduje said the state has the capacity to collect 600 samples on a daily basis.
